FACTS AND STATS

Electronic health record adoption remains the top healthcare IT priority, but other issues, including collecting data for quality reports, are gaining steam, according to a survey, Modern Healthcare reports.

The annual Modern Healthcare Survey of Executive Opinions on Key IT Issues asked respondents to identify four out of 16 possible priority items that their organizations likely will focus on in the next two years. In the survey of 344 respondents:

  • 54% selected EHR development as a key goal, down from 65% in the 2006 survey;
  • 44% selected developing or adopting a clinical IT system, down from 52% in 2006;
  • 37% selected improving productivity and reducing costs, up from 33% in 2006; and
  • 36% selected improving decision support for clinicians, down from 40% in 2006.
