Receiving high-quality healthcare increasingly requires fast and easy digital access to records, care networks, and physicians themselves. In rural communities with fewer facilities and inconsistent broadband, getting that access can be more difficult. Learn how providers can meet the connectivity challenges facing them and their patients.
COVID-19 did not create new trends in healthcare delivery but accelerated existing ones, particularly to telehealth. Efforts were made to increase telecommunication services to improve telehealth care, while pre-existing obstacles, specifically for facilities in remote areas, remained an issue. Learn what’s been done to enhance connectivity, and why it’s vital.
COVID-19 has added momentum to a wave of innovation already building within health IT. The pandemic has also increased the need for strong infrastructure to support these new technologies.
According to new research from HIMSS about innovation, U.S. hospitals are most widely prioritizing initiatives to drive operational, procedural and financial efficiencies, as well as enhance the patient experience. To fully realize these aspirations requires a coordinated mix of people, processes, technology and partners. In this second part of the "Anatomy of Innovation" research series, conducted by HIMSS Media in partnership with Spectrum Enterprise, we will discuss how health systems can optimize their digital infrastructure to advance innovation in healthcare.
Recent research from HIMSS shows that when it comes to innovation, U.S. hospitals most widely prioritize initiatives to drive operational, process, and financial efficiencies and enhance the patient experience. Getting there requires the right mix of people, processes, technology, and partners. In this session, part of a three-part series on the “Anatomy of Innovation” research sponsored by Spectrum Enterprise, Janet King, Senior Director of Market Insights and Frank Cutitta, Senior Director, Content Marketing both for HIMSS media, will draw on new research that explores the role of the IT decision maker today and discuss how health systems can best align their IT agenda and workflow priorities to advance digital health innovation.
