In addition to delivering some much-needed clarity on population health IT functionality, KLAS sought to identify the biggest challenges by inviting vendors and providers to a recent Summit. The results were quite telling, says Taylor Davis.
When it comes to areas like predictive analytics and security, the traditional health IT skills are no longer going to suffice, says Lisa Stump, who believes CIOs need to think out of the box.
