Although I normally write a cool technology update on Friday, today I want to share an important survey - the 2012 Deloitte-AMIA Health Informatics Industry Maturity Survey targeting US-focused provider, health plan and life sciences organizations.
This project will help us all understand the alignment of healthcare informatics efforts, organizational strategy, and business alignment. If this first iteration goes well, Deloitte and AMIA hope to make it an annual survey, opening it to a wider audience that includes public health, government, and perhaps making it global in scope.
I completed it on behalf of BIDMC and look forward to the results. As you can imagine, I said that informatics is critically important and needs more institutional funding!
