StrategyNxt for Digital Transformation
The HCI Group simplifies digital transformation for health systems.
Though every health system needs a digital strategy to meet rapidly changing business, care, and consumer needs, only 20% of organizations have such a strategy — and of those only half have been executed. IT teams and operations leaders are often too busy to form a strategy, much less implement it, or they do not know how to create a better experience for clinicians, employees and patients.
Whatever challenges an organization faces, StrategyNxt enables any health system to transform. Led by former CIOs for large health systems, StrategyNxt’s clinicians and business leaders form effective digital transformation strategies that healthcare organizations can execute efficiently.
