PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., May 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ECRI Institute (www.ecri.org), an independent nonprofit that researches the best approaches to improving patient care, reveals its top 10 list of health technologies that hospital c-suite executives should have on their radar now. The just-released list takes into account the convergence of critical patient safety, economic, and regulatory pressures facing healthcare executives today.

The final 10 list includes today's hottest technologies and technology-related issues across a variety of clinical and operational areas, such as health IT, cardiovascular surgery, oncologic radiation, procurement, infection control, and imaging and radiology services.

ECRI Institute's Top 10 Hospital Technology Issues: C-Suite Watch List for 2009 and Beyond, available for free download, contains easy-to-read overviews and ECRI Institute's unbiased perspectives on complex and high-profile technologies and processes of care that are prominent and will continue to be so in the next few years.

Lerner, Ph.D., president and CEO, ECRI Institute. "This difficult-to-compile ranking of 10 critical technologies will help them to pay close attention to technologies and issues that have a significant impact."
