Maximizing the Value of Health IT - Optimizing Care Quality while Sustaining a Robust Business Model
Myth: IT is an expense rather than an investment.
As the world digitizes globally at a rapid speed, it is crucial for healthcare providers to stay relevant through digital transformation.
These healthcare providers operate within the framework of national healthcare financing policy & ecosystem, evolving patient behaviors and available technologies, and it is within these constraints that they have to maneuver their businesses.
This workshop will examine in-depth ways to optimize the value of health IT to improve care quality and yet at the same time create a sustainable and competitive business model.
Learn how Health IT enables different care services to help you diversify revenue streams, improve care outcomes, enhance patient experiences and ultimately stay competitive.
Key Learning Outcomes:
- A Global Overview: The evolving economics of Health IT
- Developing IT driven care services for the modern day patients
- The HIMSS Value Score: An international quality measurement to improve clinical and financial outcomes, and drive efficiencies in care
