HIMSS and AVIA recently collaborated to produce the 2013 Healthcare Provider Innovation Survey with select U.S. hospitals, academic medical centers, children’s and ambulatory care centers to understand the current state of innovation within provider organizations.
Cost reduction and dedicated funding were among the top innovation initiatives for healthcare providers, according to the survey findings. Shown below is a visual summary of the survey results.
Survey key findings include:
- Cost reduction is the focal point of innovation initiatives. Almost 65 percent of respondents ranked this as their top innovation priority.
