Survey Says! IT Spending Increasing for Healthcare
In a recent survey from Cloud Provider Peak10 Healthcare Executives say IT spending will increase, primarily in these three areas:
- Cloud adoption: Healthcare organizations increasingly are turning to IT outsourcing, including cloud-based software, co-location of data and disaster recovery. The applications they're most likely to send to the cloud include electronic health records (EHRs), human resources/payroll and email.
- IT as revenue driver: Organizations are looking to initiatives such as patient portals and EHRs to stand out in the market and increase business.
