Healthcare IT Trends

Trends Affecting the Healthcare IT Landscape

The U.S. healthcare IT market can expect a 24 percent compound annual rate of growth (CAGR) from 2012 to 2014, according to RNCOS' U.S. Healthcare IT Market Analysis. Global IT spending will grow at a 4.9 percent CAGR from 2012 to 2014, according to Gartner's Forecast Alert: IT Spending Worldwide.

[Note: screen displays graph showing U.S. healthcare IT market reaching $40 billion in 2011 and increasing each subsequent year through 2014.]

Many healthcare clients will focus on:

  • Meaningful use
  • Security, HIPAA 5010, compliance and protection of PHI
  • Data center and network transformation
  • Business intelligence and data Warehousing
  • Revenue cycle management
  • ICD-10 remediation and testing

Finding experienced healthcare professionals remains a key challenge in 2012 and beyond.

IT Positions Increase Since November 2009:

  • Health IT positions: 67 percent
  • CIO positions: 101 percent
  • CTO positions: 127 percent

Health IT jobs are expected to GROW 20 percent from 2008 to 2018. Total employment is expected to increase by 10 percent.

Seventy percent of healthcare CIOs express concerns over the availability of skilled IT resources. Fifty-thousand additional healthcare IT workers will be needed in the next five years, nearly a 50 percent increase.

"The next decade will be shaped by multiple healthcare reform debates, payment overhauls, and the aging of the baby-boom generation. In parallel to these changes, digital experiences in the healthcare industry will also be shaped by technology trends that are taking hold in other industries and creeping into healthcare as well."

Implementing Meaningful Use successfully requires quick actions, with a focus on quality control.

  • HIPAA 5010 compliance by March 31, 2012. Only 4.5 percent of practices rate their HIPAA 5010 implementation status as fully complete.
  • ICD-10 compliance by October 1, 2013. Only 1 percent of organizations are fully ICD-10 compliant.
  • Stage 3 of Meaningful Use needs to be completed by 2016.
