Study: 40% of Hospitals Plan to Invest in Health IT Solutions

A study conducted by CapSite, a healthcare technology research and advisory firm, showed that more than 40 percent of U.S. hospitals are planning to invest in new health information management systems, according to the study.

The study, titled "2010 U.S. Health Information Management Study," collected information from more than 500 hospitals across the country. It sought to analyze trends in the U.S. HIM market resulting from the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health component of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was passed in 2009.

Among some of the trends reported in the study, 50 percent of U.S. hospitals invested in RAC solutions to help prepare for RAC audits, which CapSite director of research Michael Lee said indicates the regulatory and compliance challenges hospitals are dealing with.
