Seven of the Biggest Concerns for Healthcare CIOs

Healthcare CIOs have many concerns.

From protecting patient information to optimizing EHRs to improving the patient experience, CIOs must do much with relatively little.

Reducing costs and improving care are paramount, particularly given the need to prove value to receive reimbursements. But spending less can compromise care, thus actually jeopardizing patient health and undermining organizational revenue.
