Many initiatives are showing positive results in improved quality and cost management but current investments in technology, particularly for hospitals is frighteningly low. IDC Health Insights understands the pressure on hospitals to juggle many conflicting priorities and low margins make technology investments a challenge. Health plans investments are more in line with expected levels particularly as many health plans are planning to offer their technology platforms to providers as a service.
