Health IT – Pros & Cons

Becker’s Hospital Review sat down with the President and CEO of GE’s Healthcare IT, Jan De Witte, to discuss the ups and downs of health IT in healthcare organizations to date. De Witte, appointed CEO of GE Healthcare IT in 2011, discusses the necessity for improved health IT practices for supporting organizational productivity, not just providing quick fixes. Within the interview, De Witte looks to the coming year, and what digitization will need for success:

That will be the next thing in 2015: The industry will flip from digitization to analytics and workflow. Those are the two ways you make healthcare better: better clinical and operational decisions. Leaders will use health IT to enable the next wave of healthcare delivery, and in 2015 that will be the driver for value-based care.
