CSC Point of View: Agile Health IT as a Service
Consumerism, changing reimbursement models, and regulatory requirements — along with disruptive technologies that include social, mobile, analytics and cloud — are driving fundamental changes in healthcare. In response, healthcare organizations are looking to operate in new ways.
To succeed, these new models of care need new models of IT.
Agile IT as a service and an integrated DevOps approach can reduce overall operating costs and shift the IT organization from a capital-intensive approach to a more economically advantageous consumption-based model. At the same time, ITaaS can accelerate innovation by freeing key IT staff from a focus on “run and maintain” activities, allowing them to deliver clinical value and enable strategic business change.
Respond to Economic Levers for Change
By moving IT delivery to a consumption model, Agile ITaaS can deliver a step change in costs. CSC’s Agile Health as a service approach allows a healthcare organization to respond to three key economic imperatives that are often inaccessible in traditional ITIL-based approaches to IT delivery.
