The world of healthcare IT involves various complicated processes expanding in distinct ways that sometimes cause issues to crop up for healthcare providers and CIOs. With such confusion abounding around health IT and meaningful use requirements, it is no wonder that medical facilities are utilizing healthcare consulting services to meet stage one and stage two of meaningful use.
Nonetheless, the IT industry is booming by delivering vital business solutions to various industries. The CIO is responsible for choosing the appropriate technology that may cut costs and improve productivity within the workplace.
Quest Software, a provider of application performance monitoring services, sponsored Enterprise Management Systems, a leading industry analyst, in the creation of a white paper demonstrating three methods CIOs can utilize to assure business significance. This report offers guidance for IT-driven companies to use application performance monitoring solutions in order to deliver business-specific services. The same aspects can be applied to the healthcare field.
The three methods for CIOs to use when considering all facets of their business are:
Creating opportunities out of disorderly technology
Lowering risk of modern applications
Outlining a plan on achieving future success.
"Using APM [application performance monitoring], those resource-intensive operational tasks can be automated, leaving more time for CIOs and their departments to focus on innovation. In speaking with CIOs across the country, it's clear that to build trust with other business executives, they need to deliver tangible results pointing to outstanding IT service delivery. APM is the way to not only meet, but exceed that expectation," John Newsom, vice president and general manager of the Applications Business Unit department at Quest Software, said in a press release.
CIOs and healthcare providers may find application performance monitoring to be an overly complex process, in which case implementing healthcare IT consulting services could prove beneficial.
