CEO and CIO Priorities for Tech-Enabled Healthcare
During the recent 2018 Scottsdale Institute Annual Conference, a group of 22 CIOs from leading health-delivery organizations across the country gathered to discuss their CEOs’ top IT-related priorities. Although a wide range of issues were featured, five key themes emerged. At the top of the list was Digital Health and the Patient Experience, cited by 17 of the 22 CIOs as a top priority, followed by IT Cost Containment and IT Value Realization (cited by 13 CIOs), Innovation (12 CIOs), Support for Growth (12 CIOs), and Cybersecurity (11 CIOs). Although the top priorities discussed by the panel are not necessarily representative of every provider nationwide, the session provided great insight and important perspective into how a group of leading CIOs from advanced organizations are responding to the rapidly evolving health-delivery landscape.
