IMO Solutions published a recent survey uncovering the most pressing needs faced by U.S. provider organisations and the bold changes they are planning to improve patient care.
More than 300 provider leaders were involved in the survey who are responsible for implementing and purchasing technology at healthcare provider organisations.
Many factors affect the day-to-day activities and operations, including regulatory changes staffing shortages. 94% of provider leaders expressed their commitment to invest in software to address employee burnout and data inefficiencies. As clinician burnout is a concern for 90% of provider leaders, investment in software will help to address this challenge.
IMO’s CEO, Ann Barnes, stated, “This survey shined a light on how data integration can have a positive impact on patient care and day-to-day operations. It’s helpful to understand the most pressing needs as US provider organizations are making bold changes to improve patient care and are adapting their strategies faster than ever before”.
71% of provider leaders cited improving clinical care quality as the most important internal risk; they also aim to prioritise data quality challenges and technology investments. As a result of inefficient data use, there have been situations where 90% of provider leaders admitted to losing or experiencing leaked revenue. Subsequently, they acknowledge that provider organisations must improve the way it leverages data.
Arguably, AI has become an important tool for driving meaningful change in organisations. A strong majority of respondents favored the impact AI has had in improving clinical quality (81%), and administrative functions (83%) for their organisations.
However, some provider leaders feel that it is not always performing as expected. For those who did not favourably view the effect of AI, 98% of respondents in that group are still hopeful that technology will have a positive future impact on administrative performance and efficiency.
