Hospital C-suite: 31% of executives consider meaningful ROI on IT purchases top challenge

Listen

IT is becoming increasingly integral to hospital and health system operations, but new EHRs, software and hardware require significant capital investment. A recent peer60 survey found 31 percent of C-suite executives think return on investment for IT purchases is a top challenge for their organization.

The survey, Into the Minds of the C-Suite, includes insight from C-suite executives from 320 hospitals. Executives reported other top challenges including:

•    Managing the switch to value-based reimbursement: 64 percent
•    Coordinating care: 56 percent
•    Managing patient populations: 54 percent
•    Patient engagement: 48 percent
•    Physician and nurse shortages: 47 percent
•    Managing data: 36 percent
•    Regulatory compliance: 33 percent
•    Improving information security: 30 percent
•    Reducing hospital-acquired infections: 18 percent
•    Mergers and acquisitions: 11 percent
•    Other: 7 percent

Unsurprisingly, CIO concerns rank differently than overall executives' reported challenges. CIOs reported their top concern as improving information security.
