Business Strategy: Retooling Consulting Capabilities — Key Findings from 2014 Survey of Healthcare IT Consultants/Systems Integrators

This IDC Health Insights report describes the current status and drivers of change in the investments that IT consultants are making in their capabilities to serve payers and providers. This report compares the results of surveys completed in 2012 and 2014 that represent the current and future investment intentions of the largest IT consulting firms that serve healthcare organizations in the United States. Our analysis sheds light on what IT consultants think payers and providers will demand and how that demand will change in light of legislative, industry, and technology drivers.

"IT consultants are rapidly retooling their specializations and offerings, particularly for health plans," says Sven Lohse, research manager at IDC Health Insights. "There is mounting demand for consulting skills related to business analytics, consumer/patient engagement, and analytics, cloud, and mobility." The survey findings described in this report provide an excellent foundation for better decision making by the IT consultants and the buyers of IT consulting as they adapt to post-reform industry trends.
