52% of healthcare IT leaders evaluating cloud-based solutions for population health management

By Claire Thayer, April 12, 2016

A recent HIMSS Media survey of healthcare IT leaders identifies five key challenges in using connected health IT applications to support population health management:

  • Care Coordination – 23.5%
  • Financial investment in IT – 21.4%
  • Data Management – 18.4%
  • Patient Engagement & Adherence – 14.3%
  • Cohort identification and risk stratification – 12.2%

With the growing consumer interest in all things mobile, it’s not a surprise to see that many of these health IT leaders are giving serious considerations to population health platforms that support telehealth systems with back-end integration services.  Notably, 52% are evaluating cloud-based solutions and more than half say they intend to adopt mobile wellness monitoring apps for their population health management needs.
