Building a Healthcare Chatbot isn't Brain Surgery

The chatbot phenomenon has finally exploded in healthcare, and it is poised to be a goldmine of labor savings and improved patient engagement. Most of us have interacted with chatbots for years. Remember the last fraud alert text from your bank to verify a transaction? Yes, that was a bot. Some of us are old enough to remember when a live human used to make those calls.

Seven of the Biggest Concerns for Healthcare CIOs

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.

Budgets are largely consumed by compliance initiatives, meaningful use investments and keep-the-lights on infrastructure requirements, thereby often forcing healthcare organizations to forego innovation and value-added initiatives. Yet CIOs still must provide value by aligning their limited human capital resources with the business imperatives driven by their organization’s strategic plan.

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.

With so many conflicting priorities, healthcare CIOs have much to be concerned about but not enough time or resources to solve all of their problems.

These are seven of healthcare CIOs’ top concerns.
