2019 Healthcare IT Demand Survey
Digital and AI are
top priorities in
2019, EHR systems
continue to
dominate IT spend
In our 3rd
annual survey on the healthcare IT demand
environment, we find that the more things change, the
more they stay the same. As we have seen in previous
years, technology vendors face continued struggles
with long sales cycles. For the second year in a row,
the rise of non-traditional players such as Amazon
and Google is seen as having a strong impact on the
competitive environment among technology vendors.
in these areas are not very mature. They are confused by the buzz around
“AI” and “digital”, the changing landscape of who is playing what role and the
blurred lines of capabilities and competition.
Health systems are firmly committed to their EHR vendors. Despite the
many shortcomings, EHR systems appear to be the primary choice for digital
initiatives among health systems at this stage.Paddy Padmanabhan
This year, we also included healthcare enterprise executives to our
respondent pool and they share many of the same observations as the
technology vendors. For this group, the main IT priorities for 2019 are
accelerating digital health initiatives and investing in advanced analytics and
artificial intelligence. This aligns with the vendor view on the top spending
priorities for healthcare IT in 2019. Healthcare executives are also more
upbeat about overall IT spend growth than their vendors.
However, while technology vendors are aggressively marketing “digital”
and “AI”, healthcare executives note that the currently available solutions
Damo Consulting’s annual survey continues to provide important insights
into the demand environment for healthcare IT. For the first time, the report
compares how technology vendors and healthcare executives see 2019
shaping up. I hope you find the report useful. As always, I would love to hear
from you.

I pay 1,000 per month for a PPO plan for me and my son. For most people this is not affordable.
Affordability, while retaining quality care, seems key.

Introduction and Methodology
This report showcases the results from our 3rd
annual survey on the
demand environment for healthcare IT. For this year’s survey, we
not only collected responses from technology and service provider
executives, but also from healthcare enterprise executives.​
The survey examines a range of topics ranging from digital
transformation and where that currently stands to how healthcare
IT will look in 2019 to how spending will change or stay the same
over the next year in the healthcare IT environment. ​
In total, 64 executives responded to our survey with 40 who
are technology and service provider executives and 24 who are
healthcare enterprise executives. The survey responses were
collected in October and November, 2018.​
Please note that due to rounding or multiple responses being
allowed, percentages may not add up to 100%.​

Highlights
The top spending priorities for healthcare executives are digital, advanced analytics and AI. EHR systems will dominate technology spending budgets,
even as the focus turns to digital and analytics.
IT budgets are expected to grow by 20% or more. Healthcare executives are more upbeat about IT spend growth than vendors.
Healthcare executives say they are confused by the buzz around AI and digital. They are also struggling to make sense of the changing landscape of
who is playing what role and the blurred lines of capabilities and competition.
Cybersecurity issues are a challenge for 2019 in the healthcare sector, but not the biggest driver of technology spending or the top area of focus for
health systems in 2019.
The CIO remains the most important buyer for technology vendors, however IT budgets are now sitting with multiple stakeholders.
The biggest challenge for technology vendors is long cycles, along with product/service differentiation and brand visibility.
The rise of non-traditional players, such as Amazon, Apple and Google will have a strong impact on the competitive healthcare technology
environment. Deeply entrenched EHR vendors such as Epic and Cerner will grow in dominance.

2019 Healthcare IT Demand Survey

  • 1. 2019 Healthcare IT Demand Survey Digital and AI are top priorities in 2019, EHR systems continue to dominate IT spend
  • 2. In our 3rd annual survey on the healthcare IT demand environment, we find that the more things change, the more they stay the same. As we have seen in previous years, technology vendors face continued struggles with long sales cycles. For the second year in a row, the rise of non-traditional players such as Amazon and Google is seen as having a strong impact on the competitive environment among technology vendors. in these areas are not very mature. They are confused by the buzz around “AI” and “digital”, the changing landscape of who is playing what role and the blurred lines of capabilities and competition. Health systems are firmly committed to their EHR vendors. Despite the many shortcomings, EHR systems appear to be the primary choice for digital initiatives among health systems at this stage.Paddy Padmanabhan This year, we also included healthcare enterprise executives to our respondent pool and they share many of the same observations as the technology vendors. For this group, the main IT priorities for 2019 are accelerating digital health initiatives and investing in advanced analytics and artificial intelligence. This aligns with the vendor view on the top spending priorities for healthcare IT in 2019. Healthcare executives are also more upbeat about overall IT spend growth than their vendors. However, while technology vendors are aggressively marketing “digital” and “AI”, healthcare executives note that the currently available solutions Damo Consulting’s annual survey continues to provide important insights into the demand environment for healthcare IT. For the first time, the report compares how technology vendors and healthcare executives see 2019 shaping up. I hope you find the report useful. As always, I would love to hear from you. Paddy Padmanabhan, CEO, Damo Consulting Inc. paddy@damoconsulting.net January 10, 2019 Sincerely, The changing landscape and blurring lines of capabilities and competition in Healthcare IT 2019  2www.damoconsulting.net © 2019 Damo Consulting Inc. info@damoconsulting.net by Damo Consulting 2

  • 4. Introduction and Methodology This report showcases the results from our 3rd annual survey on the demand environment for healthcare IT. For this year’s survey, we not only collected responses from technology and service provider executives, but also from healthcare enterprise executives.​ The survey examines a range of topics ranging from digital transformation and where that currently stands to how healthcare IT will look in 2019 to how spending will change or stay the same over the next year in the healthcare IT environment. ​ In total, 64 executives responded to our survey with 40 who are technology and service provider executives and 24 who are healthcare enterprise executives. The survey responses were collected in October and November, 2018.​ Please note that due to rounding or multiple responses being allowed, percentages may not add up to 100%.​ 4www.damoconsulting.net © 2019 Damo Consulting Inc. info@damoconsulting.net by Damo Consulting 4
  • 5. Highlights The top spending priorities for healthcare executives are digital, advanced analytics and AI. EHR systems will dominate technology spending budgets, even as the focus turns to digital and analytics. IT budgets are expected to grow by 20% or more. Healthcare executives are more upbeat about IT spend growth than vendors. Healthcare executives say they are confused by the buzz around AI and digital. They are also struggling to make sense of the changing landscape of who is playing what role and the blurred lines of capabilities and competition. Cybersecurity issues are a challenge for 2019 in the healthcare sector, but not the biggest driver of technology spending or the top area of focus for health systems in 2019. The CIO remains the most important buyer for technology vendors, however IT budgets are now sitting with multiple stakeholders. The biggest challenge for technology vendors is long cycles, along with product/service differentiation and brand visibility. The rise of non-traditional players, such as Amazon, Apple and Google will have a strong impact on the competitive healthcare technology environment. Deeply entrenched EHR vendors such as Epic and Cerner will grow in dominance. 5www.damoconsulting.net © 2019 Damo Consulting Inc. info@damoconsulting.net by Damo Consulting 5
