Healthcare is changing

The deployment of clinical information technology continues at a torrid pace in acute care settings, clinics and physicians offices. The penetration of these systems into the healthcare environment brings with it additional pressures related to interoperability, intra-operability, privacy, data accuracy, governance, staffing and information storage.

Similar to other industries that experienced huge expansion in the use of information technology, healthcare executives are re-evaluating their original IT strategies in face of shortages of software professionals, limited investment resources and the challenges of real-time patient care.

You can deliver better information and knowledge to help predict, prevent and treat patients while improving the overall quality of healthcare delivery.
