Hospital IT spending is on the rise with healthcare providers spending $40 billion annually on IT programs. Clinical healthcare IT spending alone has exceeded $18.9 billion. 52 percent of CIOs surveyed anticipate increases in their IT budgets over the next year.
With the additional cost of hospital purchased services, now more than ever, hospitals have significant operational cost pressures, and there is an opportunity to strategically analyze IT agreements, utilization and pricing to effectively negotiate with IT Service Providers for maximum cost savings. Hospitals and healthcare systems are faced with the increasing challenge of effectively budgeting for the rapid technology and IT growth as they need to enhance technology for analytics, cybersecurity, ACO integrations, telehealth and more.
