Hospitals are struggling to realize the full potential of digital health solutions—and that’s coming at a significant cost to their physicians, staff, and bottom line.
That’s according to a recent survey of 100 hospital executives by healthcare consultancy Sage Growth Partners. The independent survey, conducted in February 2023, found that while most hospital leaders agree that digital health solutions are crucial to meeting their top objectives and easing their biggest pain points, many of their organizations are struggling to find optimal solutions and maximize their impact.
