Coker Group's Technology Playbook for Hospital Executives Provides Latest Thinking on Alignment, Virtual Integration
ALPHARETTA, Ga. --(Business Wire)--
More and more hospitals and physicians are choosing alignment to manage
the increasing financial and operating pressures both are feeling.
Information technology is a vital element to make these transactions
Coker Group, a national healthcare advisory firm, has published a
technology playbook for hospital executives leading both large and small
systems, as well as physicians and other key constituents involved in
clinical HCIT integration. In this report, Coker Group carefully
outlines the driving forces within the healthcare environment and how to
prepare financially, culturally and operationally in designing a model.
Furthermore, the author describes the inevitable IT mistakes to avoid in
"Health systems of every size are preparing for an accelerated pace of
HCIT adoption, implementation, and increased influence in every part of
the clinical, financial and administrative workflow," said Jeffery
Daigrepont, author of the paper and senior vice president of Cokr
Group's HCIT services. "As HCIT can serve as a unifying force to promote
alignment or to act as the platform upon which to build different
strategies, understanding the complexity of HCIT integration is
extremely important to both large and small entities."
Daigrepont added, "Developing the right HITECH alignment model is
paramount to future survival."
The white paper provides a roadmap to ensure HCIT helps galvanize
hospital-physician alignment arrangements. Health systems must assess
their HCIT integration and determine whether they have the tools to meet
the challenges of alignment and accountable care.
