Enabling providers to access real-time information about a patient’s previous ED visits has long seemed like a pipe dream, especially in the behavior health setting. But all of that is about to change, says CIO Jennifer D’Angelo.
One of the most common mistakes made when trying to drive change? Failing to understand the “ownership” people feel with certain processes, says Carla Smith, who shares valuable insights on leadership.
When it comes to the disruptors entering the healthcare market, the question CIOs should be asking isn’t how can we compete with them, but how can we partner with them, says Debbie Cancilla.
The goal is the same: to improve the delivery of care. But how IT and clinicians believe it can be achieved – and what they perceive to be the key obstacles – can be as different as night and day. So how can leaders close the gap?
It’s time to stop thinking of CNIOs as ‘firefighters,’ and start seeing them as key figures in guiding business decisions and strategies at the highest levels, according to Tammy Jackson and Hillary Ross of Witt/Kieffer.
