A small survey of provider organizations finds nearly three-quarters of respondents say they need additional information technology resources to better report on quality measures, but only 35 percent have easy access to data through a repository or warehouse.

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conducted the HIMSS 2011 Clinical Transformation Survey to assess provider readiness for using patient data to improve care delivery. McKesson Corp. sponsored the survey, in which invitations to participate were issued to an audience that included their members and clients. The survey received 175 valid responses.

Among the results, 78 percent of respondents have a formal leadership team to address clinical transformation, 49 percent have a full operational electronic health record, large majorities share clinical or financial data via scorecards or dashboards and 58 percent use business intelligence tools to facilitate quality reporting.
