The deadline to return questionnaires for MODERN HEALTHCARE's ninth annual survey of information system trends is Dec. 28.
The four-page questionnaire was mailed in October to senior executives of hospitals and health systems.
Responses will form the basis of a comprehensive article detailing problems facing healthcare delivery organizations and their solutions for capturing, reporting, transmitting and analyzing information.
The article and statistical results will be published in the Feb. 22, 1999, issue of MODERN HEALTHCARE and distributed at the annual conference and exhibition of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, the industry's biggest gathering of computer professionals.
The survey sample does not include vendors, consultants or suppliers to the industry. Results will depend on the quality of responses from healthcare leaders to whom the questionnaire was sent.
Return the surveys to MODERN HEALTHCARE, Information Systems Survey, c/o John Morrissey, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill. 60611.
