CDW Healthcare offers self-assessment IT tool
CDW Healthcare has released its IT Checkup Self-Assessment Tool, a Web-based program that enables hospital IT managers to evaluate and compare their clinical application and IT infrastructure investments to U.S. averages.

The free tool is based upon the results of the CDW Healthcare IT Checkup, a U.S. survey of healthcare IT professionals published in March.

Hospital IT managers, CIOs and senior leadership can answer questions about their clinical applications and IT infrastructure such as e-prescribing, disaster recovery, storage management, application performance and budget allocation, according to the Vernon Hills, Ill.-based CDW. The questions highlight indicators of relative strength or weakness in both areas.

The CDW Healthcare IT Checkup Self-Assessment Tool is online at No findings based upon individual usage of the Self-Assessment Tool will be made publicly available, the company said.
