AHA Launches Health IT Survey

The American Hospital Association has begun soliciting responses for its annual AHA Annual Survey and encourages all CIOs to complete the Information Technology Supplement to help the organization gain a better understanding of the state of IT adoption at member hospitals.

"Even if your hospital has not adopted any or all of the specific technologies in the survey, your answers are extremely important," wrote AHA President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock in the survey cover letter. "This is particularly true at a time when we are carefully monitoring the CMS' implementation of incentive programs on meaningful use of electronic health records, which will be followed by penalties in 2015 and later."

The survey has been mailed to all member hospital CEOs, and an online version is available here.
