HIMSS Analytics released today its latest Essentials Brief, the 2015 Clinical and Business Intelligence Study.
Along with tremendous insights, the era of Big Data has also ushered in the need for healthcare organizations to become increasingly particular about what data they collect and how it is used. Based on data from the HIMSS Analytics® Database as well as insight from healthcare IT executives across the country, topics covered include market utilization, vendor market share, purchase plans, and the role best-of-breed solutions play.
“Overall our findings point to a growing C&BI market,” said Brendan FitzGerald, HIMSS Analytics Research Director. “However, as organizations determine which tools they need to make better clinical and financial decisions it is a market in which demand is still evolving.”
Highlights of the Essentials Brief include:
- 6 percentage point increase in organizations with a C&BI solution since 2013 HIMSS Analytics C&BI Study
- 54 percent polled said they currently use their EHR/HIS vendor for C&BI
- The most important area of focus for organizations with a C&BI solution changed from Accountable Care in 2013 to Population Health
HIMSS Analytics Essentials Briefs are complimentary for hospitals and health systems, and are available for a fee to all other interested parties. To request a copy or view the Table of Contents please visit www.himssanalytics.org/research.
