Although archiving data can play a critical role in helping to recoup losses stemming from Covid-19, the real value comes in “decommissioning applications and getting them out of your portfolio,” said our panelists during a recent webinar.
As organizations move toward digital health – and CIOs wrap their heads around concepts as complex as application rationalization – it’s becoming clear that the role is more about relationship management than ever before, according to our panelists.
The one area that can’t be overlooked when decommissioning applications and migrating data? User experience, according to Marc Probst, Cara Babachicos and Kamal Patel, who shared their thoughts during a recent panel discussion.
The best way to build trust with users? Make sure the system works for them, says Marc Probst, CIO at Intermountain Healthcare. In this interview, he talks about recovering from poor decisions, why he believes Meaningful Use was necessary, and the need for leaders who are “visionaries.”
Although health systems are moving toward integrated platforms, providers still need to access legacy data, which means CIOs have to find a way that make that happen, as seamlessly as possible, according to Marc Probst and Nick Szymanski.
