The annual Healthcare IT News Best Hospital IT Departments 2016 awards was created to shine a light on the challenges that our readers face day in and day out.

We hear from them every day about the challenges of meeting imposing workloads in a mission-critical environment. Working at a hospital IT department is not like working in retail or other business environments.

The decisions made by healthcare IT professionals can quite literally mean the difference between life and death for patients if critical information is not available when a clinician needs it. But like other business environments, healthcare IT departments also face budget pressures. Making do with less is often a job requirement.

Sharing success stories is part of the ongoing mission for Healthcare IT News and our multi-part coverage of the Best Hospital IT Departments is one way we work toward achieving that goal. Another is a webinar that we produce annually in which the leaders of winning hospitals talk about their strategies. It is always a popular event, as the leaders talk frankly about how they are dealing with these challenges and also share a few laughs about the ups and downs of the profession.

This year, we are fortunate to have Bernie Clement, CIO at Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, and David Higginson, CIO at Phoenix Children’s Hospital for the webinar which will take place live on December 15 at 1:00 PM EDT; it will also be available for playback if you can’t make the live presentation.

Register today and you’ll receive a link to both the live presentation and the on-demand playback.
