PA's Bret Schroeder, healthcare expert, is quoted in an article in Modern Healthcare. The article discusses IT expenditures in the healthcare industry as electronic health record (EHR) systems continue to face growing IT needs for upgrades, analytics and patient engagement.
Commenting on this topic, Bret states: “There is definitely fatigue in the marketplace. EHR spending is absolutely down because there was such a big emphasis on it a few years ago.”
How organisations can stop wasting their best ideas
Bret concludes: “My sense is overall budgets are flat. You see a lot of IT groups wanting to do the cool thing. But unless they're solving a business problem, they're going to have a hard time.”
