We are all part of the "Information Generation," a growing community of digital citizens with the world's information at our fingertips. As both patients and consumers of healthcare information, our expectations for preventative care and wellness, diagnosis speed and treatment, and disease management are changing.
With these new possibilities, come new opportunities to close the gap between the promise and the reality of Health IT transformation to increase efficiencies, improve patient-provider collaboration, and enable data-driven decisions.
To explore the future and identify next steps, Vanson Bourne surveyed 236 line-of-business healthcare leaders in 18 countries.
