I’d love to hear what you’re doing in either of the following two areas, but please try and reach out to be by July 31 to be sure of getting in the story—it’s summer and I want to go the beach.

Guys, I need to talk to FOUR CIOs for the budgeting story, so step right up.

1. Evidence-Based Medicine and Clinical-Decision Support

Many believe that adhering to evidence-based protocols will be part of overarching healthcare reform in this country. But the subject raises many questions, starting with which CDS system to use. Some vendors sell these solutions as part of their core clinical offerings, but there are also many best of breed solutions that need to be interfaced with an EMR. Lastly, many hospitals have gone ahead and written the own home grown rules. Do any of these work better than others, and what are the downsides of each? Contact: [email protected]

2. Budgeting in Times of Crisis

“As initiative after unclear initiative piles up (HITECH, ICD-10, overall healthcare reform), CIOs must devise methods of moving forward strategically in an uncertain, unstable environment where diaphanous projects come into focus and go out, where deadlines are established and then mysteriously postponed, much like a stay of execution. In addition, the country and industry find itself in a deep and prolonged recession, making access to capital a further challenge.

I’m looking to talk to CIOs who have already begun to incorporate these sweeping changes into their budget process, offering clarity for their CEO and CFO, while allowing the flexibility necessary to react to changing market conditions. In these profiles, we’ll reveal four detailed case studies of exactly how specific CIOs (and institutions) are grappling with change and uncertainty. Contact: [email protected]
