TEKsystems survey identifies security, mobility and business intelligence as dominant concerns as organizations attack digital modernization of healthcare.
Leading into HIMSS16, TEKsystems highlighted study findings that explore the current state of IT operations within healthcare organizations. The results identify key objectives and challenges for healthcare IT teams, the skills most needed to meet those demands, and expectations for spending and confidence. The data is gleaned from information captured in TEKsystems’ annual IT forecasts as reported by IT leaders (CIOs, IT VPs, IT directors, IT hiring managers) at healthcare organizations.
“The forecast results speak to the cyclical nature of IT investments healthcare organizations have undertaken over the past several years,” says Ryan Skains, executive director of TEKsystems Healthcare Services. “In 2014, regulatory changes drove spending up, but now healthcare leaders have grown past the threshold of building applications or interoperability coding and are looking to get a return on investment. Despite reports that there will be fewer budget increases this year, confidence is at a historical high. Healthcare IT leaders still have some big projects ahead—such as an industrywide move to mobile health and patient portals—yet seem poised to take them on. Hiring is stabilizing with slight increases expected, and salaries are expected to increase for skill sets that will be critical for this digital modernization.”
TEKsystems will be exhibiting at booth No. 6450 at HIMSS16, March 1–3, 2016, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
