Getting Started on Your Journey to Improved Outcomes

The climate of the health information and technology ecosystem is ever changing. As the business of healthcare changes rapidly and emphasizes value in care delivery experiences, organizations are challenged to explore what kind of value they are leveraging, or should be leveraging, to improve organizational outcomes.

HIMSS is a strong advocate for the transformative potential of health information and technology to improve care. Through focusing on the “and,” organizations are better equipped to obtain data they need to empower impactful innovations that, when strategically implemented, harness the potential to dramatically improve healthcare organizational outcomes.

“Your time and resources are valuable, and so is your data. That’s why a strategic plan executed by experts is key to getting the most out of your data,” said Blaine Newton, executive vice president of HIMSS Analytics, noting that this all starts with a dedicated team with the right analytics expertise to get your strategic plan off the ground. A strategic plan, he explained, empowers the development of actionable roadmaps that can set your organization up for long-term success.
