What CIOs Should Know About Health System Strategy in 2018
11:30am - 12:30pmWednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Sands Show Room
Health system leaders are in search of the best no-regrets investments and strategic imperatives to succeed during this time of uncertainty in healthcare. This session presents the results of our market analysis and interview data with dozens of health system CEOs. We identify three strategic priorities for 2018: 1) reduce overall cost of operations, 2) transform the delivery model, and 3) rebuild the health system. While these priorities will consume health system CEO agendas, what does it mean to health system CIOs? We detail three associated opportunities for CIOs to encourage and/or enable strategic initiatives to complement these priorities. They are to: eliminate unwarranted care variation with the use of clinical decision support (CDS), deploy telemedicine to increase access, and encourage the adoption of consumer-centric technologies. With our case studies and interview data, we help CIOs be better equipped for 2018’s challenges and aligned with organizational priorities.
