ECRI Lists Top 10 Hospital Technologies to Watch in 2009

May 4, 2009 - ECRI Institute released its top 10 list of health technologies that hospital corporate-suite executives should have on their radar, including electronic medical records, hybrid operating rooms with cath lab imaging systems, radiation oncology, ultra-high field MRI, premium-slice CT, and the use of therapeutic hypothermia after heart attack and stroke.

The just-released list takes into account the convergence of critical patient safety, economic, and regulatory pressures facing healthcare executives today, ECRI said. The final 10 list includes some of today’s hottest technologies and technology-related issues across a variety of clinical and operational areas, such as health IT, cardiovascular surgery, procurement, infection control, and imaging and radiology services. ECRI Institute’s “Top 10 Hospital Technology Issues: C-Suite Watch List for 2009 and Beyond,” is available as a free download, contains easy-to-read overviews and ECRI Institute’s unbiased perspectives on complex and high-profile technologies and processes of care that are prominent and will continue to be so in the next few years. The new executive report is intended to help guide healthcare leaders in planning for capital expenditures.
