Planning a healthcare technology innovation initiative

Much of the innovation adopted by healthcare organizations comes from ready-to-go software or hardware that can uniquely address one or more challenges.

Examples include hospitals using collaboration platforms to support care team collaboration, the use of analytics tools alongside electronic health record data to gain new patient insights, and the use of wearable devices to track patients’ vitals once they leave the hospital.

To ensure the success of a healthcare technology innovation initiative, CIOs can follow several steps that range from research to evaluation and continue to be the baseline for most innovation projects.
