We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 5/12 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Bruce Brandes from Lucro Solutions on the topic of “Accelerating Decision-Making in Healthcare: How Health Systems Choose Innovative Solutions”.
To be competitive in today’s digital healthcare economy, providers, hospitals and health plans need to leverage existing and emerging products offered by a growing base of vendors. But the healthcare market is saturated with products and services with new vendors entering the market seemingly every day. The people involved with identifying and selecting appropriate products and services become overwhelmed by all that’s available. Cutting through the noise and separating the wheat from the chaff often results in scars when vendors oversell their offerings and ultimately under-deliver on their promises.
To be able to execute faster on innovation in healthcare, those charged with identifying, selecting and implementing healthcare products and services must filter the universe of shiny things and make better decisions faster. Mistakes can be costly. In the instance of certain products or services, mistakes could be fatal; literally.
In this tweetchat, we’ll explore topics related to the discovery, organization, collaboration and prioritization of healthcare products and services offered by vendors based on defined strategic initiatives and the healthcare organizations that purchase, implement and use them.
Join us on Friday May 12th at 12:00pm ET as we discuss the following questions on #HITsm:
