Mini-Case: predicting Future HMIS Trends by Chief Information Officers:

Quammen Group, an Orlando, Florida–based consulting firm, co-sponsored the Health Data Management 2008 CIO Survey and found CIO and HMIS executives to be optimistic on many aspects of future HMIS growth, including real-time claims adjudication and clinical decision support.
When asked, “How do you expect your organization’s total IT budget to change in your next fiscal year?”, 37 percent rated it to grow between 5 and 10 percent, 23 percent felt it would grow less than 5 percent, 20 percent expected it to exceed 11 percent or more, 13 percent did not expect a change, and only 4 percent claimed there would be a decline—leaving 2 percent for all other rating categories. More generally, the survey found that most healthcare services organizations expect this growth to be fueled by greater information access needs for clinicians, especially in the form of electronic and personal health records (EHR).
In short, most chief executive officers and other IT executives indicated that the top priority for the coming year for healthcare services organizations is implementing EHR. The full survey results are given at
