HealthTech CouncilFalcon Consulting Group announces topics for the upcoming April 2013 HealthTech Council Meeting located in Chicago. At the Meeting, Falcon will be speaking with top executives from healthcare institutions. Brendan Downing, Partner of Falcon Consulting Group mentioned, “CMIO’s have been rushed to meet EMR implementation deadlines without doing due diligence and proper long term sustainability planning and are now faced with behemoth systems which are running their entire businesses but not performing the way they expected.  The next wave of IT investment will be focused on efficiency, interoperability and consolidation efforts as well as security and risk management. “The most important topics being covered in Health IT recently center around EHR:

•    Optimizing EHRs, which is one of the biggest strategic goals of hospitals and systems who have deployed EHR systems.

•    Leveraging the power of EHR tools to maximize ROI, a critical strategy in an environment where EHRs can take up to 90% of an organization’s IT budgets

•    How to use EHRs as a catalyst for the complete transformation of an organization by harnessing the power of data, information sharing and informatics to support better decision making

•    Using business intelligence and informatics capabilities (analyzing data to create knowledge) to support better reporting capabilities so clinicians can use the data and knowledge created by these systems to diagnose and treat their patients.

Parham Eftekhari, Co-Founder and EVP of Research at HealthTech Council, mentioned, “The industry is just beginning to realize the power that IT has in completely transforming our healthcare industry.  Payment reform, effective and wide-spread preventative care programs, wider access of quality care in rural areas and higher patient engagement are some of the most exciting impacts that we are starting to see and will completely revolutionize the way view healthcare”.
