A new ecosystem where IT and biomed engineers may work better under one leadership

For many health organizations, the biomedical engineering and IT teams do not both directly report to the CIO. While in the past that would be somewhat acceptable, nowadays biomed engineers can significantly benefit from working more closely with the IT department, which has encouraged many hospital and health system CIOs to begin looking for ways to combine IT and biomed together under the management umbrella.


In many of the top wired hospitals in the nation today, the integration of medical devices and connectivity of systems is key to their success. This only highlights the importance of IT and bioengineering working together to ensure that all medical device vendors are providing systems that can play nice in this new ecosystem where devices are expected to push / pull data sets and eliminate manual data entry when it comes to patient data.
