The power of a partnership model for IT operations

Thursday, September 14th, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT 

As budget season approaches, healthcare leaders need to consider how they'll balance budget constraints with the need to stay ahead of the curve on tech — on top of their daily duties. 

Outsourcing the management of day-to-day IT operations like the service desk is one way technology leaders can free up time to focus on what really matters: collaborating with C-suite colleagues and clinical stakeholders to ensure a strong 2024. 

In this live webinar, experts will share how Surgery Partners and Ardent Health Services took advantage of collaborative partnerships to create operational efficiency, enable leaders to focus on core competencies, and fill resource gaps on the IT team. 

You'll learn:
  • How to choose the best shared workforce model for your organization and how to integrate it
  • Short- and long-term benefits of IT managed services, contingent staffing and a hybrid model
  • Insights about C-level relationships based on a survey of CFOs
