Hanover, Md. – February 18, 2014 – TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today released the results of a survey that explored the current state of business intelligence (BI) system deployments among healthcare organizations. The research, released in advance of HIMSS14, explores many of the concepts serving as central themes to the annual event, including clinical analytics and BI, as well as data interoperability. Despite the acknowledged benefits that healthcare organizations would realize, the study finds that the vast majority have yet to implement a BI system.
The survey, conducted on behalf of TEKsystems’ Healthcare Services division, represents views of more than 250 healthcare professionals, including senior-level health IT executives and medical staff such as CIOs, directors of information systems and clinical informatics, physicians, and chief nursing officers. Respondents represent a wide cross section of healthcare organizations including hospitals, medical clinics, ambulatory care centers and integrated delivery systems. Full results of the survey and an executive summary are available from TEKsystems’ online research library.
Key highlights from the survey include:
Business Intelligence System Implementation Lags
Data Complexity and Lack of Skills Cited as Top Challenges
Data Completeness and Availability Top Goal for Business Intelligence Initiatives
Data IT Expertise Will Present Greatest Hiring Challenge
"Though there’s consensus among healthcare organizations on the benefits to be derived from BI systems, the reality is that there is a long road ahead for implementation,” says TEKsystems Vice President of Healthcare Services Allen Kriete. "For those without an implementation plan already in place, it will be critical that they identify the necessary skill sets and secure the necessary talent in order to ensure a smooth deployment that is custom-fit for their organization’s unique needs."
The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) is a global, cause-based, not-for-profit organization focused on better health through information technology (IT). TEKsystems will be exhibiting (Hall A, booth #729) at HIMSS14 taking place February 23-27, 2014 in Orlando, Fla.
