Quality of Care As Priority
Biggest need is available capex and opex. With Obamacare and other healthcare reform changes breathing down our necks, the detrimental impact to health systems will be excruciating over the next several years so investment in HIT is going to be a challenge. We see this trend already; budget cuts and other cost savings measures are necessary in order to just be sure the bills get paid. This means that a closer partnership with aligned vendors is more critical than ever before.
We are fortunate to have had a clinical data warehouse for many years. This warehouse is used for analytics and reporting for both operations/ productivity as well as clinical research and practice of care improvements. Also our HIE is used by aligned providers and assists by providing information that prevents duplication of imaging exams, lab tests and such.
First and foremost the IT strategic plan must be derived from the organizational strategic plan. Technology partnered with people and process accomplishes great things! IT must be a partner with the business with a focus on using enabling technologies to improve quality of care, reduce costs and enhance efficiencies.
Of course HIEs are a big one and we continue to deploy the state wide GaHIN. All of us will need to be connected- from our private or service area HIEs to the state HIE and ultimately to the national one. Add to this the pervasiveness of mobile technologies for virtual care such as CIUs and our whole world of how care is rendered shifts to a new dimension for reaching all potential patients regardless of geographic boundaries or other constraints.
