Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) is a “not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality, safety, cost-effectiveness, and access, through the best use of information technology and management systems” (Source: wikipedia). Every year HIMSS produces a Leadership Survey according with U.S. senior IT executive’s responses, and for the 25th HIMSS Annual Leadership Survey there were 298 valid responses.
MuleSoft, a company that integrates platforms for connecting SaaS and enterprise applications in the cloud and on-premise, created an infographic regarding the collected information from the 25th Leadership Survey mentioned before.
