  • Executive briefing: Survey researches health IT spending

    Just about anyone working in hospitals and ambulatory clinics will tell you that their No. 1 goal is to improve the quality of patient care, and technology plays a huge role in that objective. The results of TechTarget's 2017 Health IT Purchasing Intentions Survey, conducted in partnership with the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), indicate that quality of care, patient engagement and security all will receive boosted investment in health IT spending this year. Those three areas tie together in creating a modern patient experience in which diagnosis and treatment take center stage, all while protected health data remains secure behind the scenes.

    In this special survey briefing, our editors look deeper into the results, in particular exploring which patient engagement technologies are poised to get funding from healthcare CIOs.

    For the 15th year, Storage magazine has surveyed storage pros to learn about their IT spending trends for the coming months. As you'd expect, the cloud continues to pick up steam for both primary and secondary projects, while all-flash arrays and SSDs also rated highly. Hyper-converged interest, meanwhile, nearly doubled over 2016. See how your 2017 shopping list compares to today's IT spending trends.

    When SSDs supplanted HDDs, it revealed many deficiencies in the traditional RAID array model. Storage vendors changed course, leading to the highly scalable, fast and reliable hyper-converged systems of today. Is it time to go all-in with hyper-convergence?
