Carefx's Newest White Paper Illuminates Healthcare CIOs' Growing Role in Operations, Strategic Thinking and IT Project Decision Making
Date:5/27/2009

e out how to get the info out." Also, many said that interoperability should be viewed as providing more constituents with better access to data, rather than simply moving the data around.

Participants in the white paper include David Hotchkiss, Director of Academic Technology Services, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio; Lynn Witherspoon, M.D., Systems Vice President and CMIO, Ochsner Health System, New Orleans; Benoit Long, Chief Information and Marketing Officer, Trillium Health Centre, Ontario, Canada; Tom Martin, Senior Vice President for Strategic and Support Services and CIO, Evergreen Healthcare, Kirkland, Washington; and Ken Lawonn, Senior Vice President and CIO, Alegent Health, Omaha, Nebraska.

The newly released white paper notes that healthcare IT typically involves a significant investment of dollars but comes without a quick turnaround. CIOs and CMIOs have an obligation to "avoid the short-sightedness of cutting projects on the front end without significant backend return," which means "heavier scrutiny of capital investments, greater attention to efficiencies and review of the patient's ability to pay as increases in bad debt and self-paying patients are matched by a dip in volume and a decline in discretionary diagnostics."

Insights within the white paper confirm some findings of the 20th Annual HIMSS Leadership Survey, where 28 percent of about 300 respondents reported that lack of adequate resources or budget remains the most significant barrier to successful IT implementation. A related April 2009 survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers revealed that 82 percent of hospital CIOs had already cut their IT spending budgets in 2009 by an average of 10 percent, with one in 10 making more drastic cuts of greater than 30 percent.
