A Healthcare Executive's Guide to Achieving IT and Clinical Engineering Convergence

IT Engineering Convergence

Medical device and biomedical/clinical engineering (CE) teams are increasingly dependent on their provider’s IT infrastructure department to perform their job duties. 

Technology advances have introduced new integration opportunities like feeding live patient monitoring data into the EMR and creating multi-platform clinical communication systems. This crossover between traditionally siloed teams suggests that a defined convergence strategy would create even more visibility into outcome improvement.

  • What are the risks in maintaining separate IT and CE strategies and departments?
  • How can we leverage the unique skillsets of both biomedical engineers and IT engineers to improve clinical and financial outcomes?
Our guide answers these key questions and uncovers how IT and CE convergence can accelerate a health system’s ability to implement life-saving patient care solutions.
