Secrets of CIO Success on the EMR Journey to Meaningful Use – Accenture – 4 January 2011

“The government mandate to demonstrate meaningful use of electronic medical records (EMRs) by 2015 or face stiff penalties has only heightened these pressures.

Healthcare providers must update their IT infrastructure to adhere not only to these new government regulations, but also to requirements coming from the World Health Organization (such as the new ICD-10 coding). Given that a small percentage of providers are currently in compliance with the meaningful use requirements, the transition to EMR will represent a watershed moment for the industry.

To prepare for that transition, Accenture conducted in-depth interviews with 15 CIOs of leading US health systems. Each organization in our study is evaluating options for achieving meaningful use.
