Insight Launches Online Resource for Healthcare Community

Insight (NASDAQ: NSIT), a leading worldwide technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions in healthcare environments across the U.S., today announced the launch of Insight ON: Healthcare, a news and digital information resource created to help the healthcare community navigate myriad IT challenges. The site was launched in tandem with the introduction of “Insight On Healthcare, Convergence, Communication and Collaboration,” a whitepaper published to help the healthcare community grapple with one of its most vexing issues: the merging of existing technology with new tools and trends such as cloud computing and mobile devices. “The healthcare industry is undergoing significant change with respect to improving quality of care while reducing costs,” said Dave Cristal, vice president and general manager, Insight Public Sector. “As a result, it is becoming more important to find innovative ways to leverage technology to solve those challenges while meeting regulatory guidelines. From protecting patient data to building an infrastructure that supports physician and patient mobility across the delivery system, the healthcare environment is wrought with complexities. Healthcare facilities of all variations require relevant information and expert guidance, which we’re now able to offer.” Insight ON: Healthcare – An In-Depth IT Resource Insight’s introduction of information and resources for the healthcare community is part of its commitment to help healthcare decision makers who need critical expertise as technology rapidly transforms information technology. Insight ON: Healthcare is designed as an information resource to help decision-makers navigate an environment as it embraces wireless technology, tablets and other technological advances. Insight ON: Healthcare features regularly updated editorial content from Insight staff and guest authors covering a wide range of topics, ranging from how HIPAA rule changes apply to cloud-based technology, to the way in which technology can improve patient engagement. An example of the content featured on the site is Insight’s new whitepaper, “Insight On Healthcare, Convergence, Communication and Collaboration,” which explains the technological transformation healthcare is undergoing as it moves from a volume-based, fee-for-service system to one based on value, accountable care and population health. “Each member of the healthcare community is faced with regulatory uncertainty, growing expectations around the patient experience, inadequate staffing resources, and the need to implement technology to address these areas while insuring positive financial results,” said Cristal. “Through Insight ON: Healthcare, we’re working to engage with key healthcare stakeholders to give them the knowledge and information they need to actively shape how technology is introduced and used for years to come.” The launch of Insight ON: Healthcare builds on Insight’s 20-plus years of experience working with decision makers across the healthcare spectrum.
