The deadline to return questionnaires for MODERN HEALTHCARE's 10th annual survey of information systems trends is Feb. 29.
The four-page questionnaire was mailed Jan. 3 to senior executives of hospitals and healthcare 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 April 10 issue of MODERN HEALTHCARE. They will be 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 questionnaires were sent.
Return the surveys to MODERN HEALTHCARE, Information Systems Survey, c/o John Morrissey, 740 N. Rush St., Chicago, Ill. 60611.
