Building a comprehensive HIT strategy that will meet the needs of today and still facilitate your hospital's goals for tomorrow is a complex challenge. Your strategic team should capitalize on its internal IT experience, but may need the breadth of industry and technical knowledge only available through a strong consulting partner.

Hospitals face complex challenges in mapping out a comprehensive IT strategy that will optimize today’s patient care and financial performance, and position their organizations to expand capabilities and reimbursements in the future. There was a day when five-year plans were standard, but the lightning speed of technology and healthcare environmental change is a difficult barrier to sustainable plans without the expertise of visionary specialists in hospital IT strategies. We offer that expertise as well as a commitment to ensuring our hospital clients are prepared for the future. The challenges your hospital faces include:

  • Financial and staffing constraints
  • Changing reimbursement models
  • New IT infrastructural models
  • Interoperability, including HIE integration
  • Patient engagement
  • Population health management needs including better data analytics
  • Physician shortages
  • New technologies
  • Eliminating inefficiencies
  • Revenue cycle optimization
  • Quality of care
  • Reporting standards
  • Security
  • Return on investment
  • More

Phoenix’ methodology considers all of these issues when working with our clients to build  a sustainable and flexible IT strategy. We focus on helping our hospital clients use IT not as an end in itself, but as an enabling environment that will cost-effectively support their short- and long-term organizational vision and viability.
