Why Health Execs Don't Understand The ROI Of HIT

Jeff Rowe | Government Health IT | October 26, 2012

A new report finds that many healthcare executives are dissatisfied with their organization’s efforts to determine the return on investment (ROI) on recently installed EHR systems.

Released by Beacon Partners, a healthcare management consulting firm, the results are based on a survey of more than 300 exeutives.  According to the report, only 40 percent of respondents to the survey said they were using performance measures for their systems, and only 36 percent were satisfied with the extent to which their organizations had been measuring overall ROI.
