Trends & Glimmers: The State of Healthcare IT
June 1, 2005, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Dave Garets, CEO, and Mike Davis, EVP, HIMSS Analytics. In July of 2004, HIMSS Analytics acquired the Dorenfest IHDS+ Database(tm) and created the HIMSS AnalyticsSM Database. After making substantial improvements in data quality and comparability, it’s been mined for trends, directions, and guidance for healthcare organizations and IT companies. Dave Garets will discuss the reality of what’s planned and what’s been done in healthcare IT, based on interviews with over 4,000 hospital and health system CIOs and other IT and business executives. Dave and Mike provide understanding about where the industry is headed in technologies and applications, cover what’s really being implemented to effectively assist HCOs in their quests to improve patient safety, reveal how prevalent CPOE and closed loop medication administration implementations really are, and bring to light the truth about spending on IT by HCOs.
