59% of healthcare organizations are behind on digital health strategy

A survey of more than 450 healthcare organizations, administered by the cloud-based platform Validic, found that more than half of healthcare organizations (59 percent) are either behind schedule with their digital health strategy or do not have a digital health strategy in place.  

The remaining 41 percent of healthcare organizations included in the survey report being on schedule with implementing a digital health strategy.

"The purpose of this survey was to provide the healthcare ecosystem with an important update and valuable insights on the progress the industry is making with digital health," Validic Chief Marketing Officer Chris Edwards said. "Digital health is moving from being a competitive, speed-to-market advantage to being a vital component of a company's success and relevance in the new healthcare landscape. Now is the time to be executing."
