For healthcare, IT can be a bear to manage, especially when it comes to change in an industry that deals with such high volumes of personal, paper-based data. That’s why digital transformation can be as disruptive as a bear in the operating room.

Patients want digital processes that give them easier, faster access to real-time information. Healthcare organizations want the agile, scalable and resilient systems to roll out those digital processes. But the unruly, unpredictable bear-like nature of IT change makes it hard to achieve digital goals.

To learn more about the status of digital transformation and its prognosis for the future, we initiated a global study of IT healthcare decision makers. You can view the results now to see how respondents think about digital change.

The research can answer key questions you may have, including:

  • Is digital transformation a high priority to healthcare organizations?
  • What actions are healthcare organizations taking to achieve digital goals?
  • What percentage of the IT budget is being allocated to digital transformation?
  • Is there a link between digital transformation, productivity and revenue growth?
  • Will digital services really impact patient satisfaction?
  • Do IT decision makers welcome new digital tools?
