Healthcare ERP systems have largely been neglected as hospitals have invested instead in electronic health records (EHR) to meet meaningful use mandates. Conflicting priorities like the ICD-10 conversion and data security have also collectively siphoned off what little has remained in health IT budgets.
The resulting dearth of funding for ERP systems in healthcare organizations has forced hospitals to defer maintenance and delay upgrades, thereby impairing performance and in some cases compromising security. The costs associated with ignoring business applications for the sake of clinical IT upgrades will continue to mount as productivity is stunted and ERP vendors release new versions of their applications, thus bringing older systems closer to obsolescence.
