More than ever, healthcare IT executives are expected to take costs out of their organizations. One of the main ways they can do so is by rationalizing their application portfolios and sunsetting tools -- from EHR to ERP -- that no longer make the grade. But the process of doing so efficiently is far from simple. In this important webinar, we'll hear from leaders who have navigated the rationalization road.

So how can CIOs and other IT executives -- who have little to do with data entry -- bring about improved accuracy? And when bad data does go into the system, how and when can it be caught, corrected and normalized? In this important webinar, we'll speak to leaders who are focused on increasing the confidence clinicians have ...
Conflicts among clinical, IT, and administrative teams often come down to one key factor: a language barrier, says Jason Buchanan, MD, Clinical Informatics Officer at Baylor College of Medicine. In this podcast, he talks about how leaders can remedy this, and what it takes to truly “listen.”
Running an effective IT shop means doing a lot of things right. First off, you must have a sound governance system to ensure the right work is being taken on, then you must have an effective team (and system) to accomplish and track the work. Of course, that's just the start, because CIOs must constantly communicate with eager customers about the value being delivered while not overcommitting teams that are often on the brink o...
The best security professionals have always focused on empowering rather than restricting. However, securing today's work-from-anywhere workforce is putting that noble goal to the test. That's because working from home (or anywhere other than locations owned by the organization) opens up a can of security worms and questions, such as are folks more susceptible to ransomware and BEC social engineering attacks because the com...

Unlike unmanaged medical devices -- which are known to harbor risk for healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) -- many HDOs seem willing to trust in their vendors and accept the risk of third-party managed devices or, worse, don't even realize the danger. Security challenges range from patient portals, to EMR access, to vendor access, among others. In this timely webinar, leaders will detail the problem and reveal the best pra...
The most important question leaders need to ask when evaluating a new solution is whether it’s going to help providers and patients – and how, said Jason Buchanan. In this interview, he discussed his approach to optimization and what it takes to build a strong culture.
Before any initiative is launched, two questions should be asked, according to Laura Marquez: “what are we missing and what did we not consider?” In this interview, she talks about the importance of collaboration and how she has worked to create a culture of safety.
Sometimes timing is everything, said Dustin Hufford, who talks about the challenges of stepping into the CIO role right before the pandemic. He also discusses the benefits of having been with a community hospital, and how Cooper is working to retain IT talent.
“For a project to be successful, we need to make sure we understand what problems we’re trying to solve,” said Laura Marquez, AVP of IT Operations at UConn Health. In this interview, she talks about how her team is leveraging tools to improve the experience for both patients and caregivers.
As post-pandemic work arrangements continue to evolve, IT executives are left to navigate how best to keep their teams in touch and on track. It's not an easy balance, as organizations seek to retain sought-after talent by providing flexibility, while also ensuring the necessary collaboration to not only move forward but innovate. In this important webinar, we'll hear from leaders about the arrangements they are experimenti...
