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.
 

Are you a connected hospital?

 

This infographic sums up HIMSS document, where we can see that in U.S.:

• 25% – Are leveraging the latest technology to provide better patient care

• 19% – Companies are integrating new technologies with installed systems

• Patients using telehealth services are expected to reach 7 million in 2018 up from 350.000 in 2013

• 37% – indicated that IT can positively impact patient care by improving clinical and quality outcomes

 
These statistics reinforces the need to health interoperable systems, for that data can flow freely across clinical and non-clinical devices/systems (Source: MuleSoft blog).
