HIMSSCast: C-suite is concerned about inflation and affordability

Hospital leaders can use digital transformation to cut costs, improve processes and gain efficiencies, says Tina Wheeler of Deloitte.

Tina Wheeler is the U.S. Health Care Leader for Deloitte and is the author of the company's recently-released report, 2023 Outlook for Health Care  In August she co-authored Health Care organizations turn to CFOs to help navigate disruption.

Looking ahead to 2023, Wheeler said, healthcare has a ton of issues. Many of the top 2022 concerns will lead the way in 2023: workforce shortages and costs; a "tripledemic" influx of COVID-19, RSV and flu cases at a time of delayed discharges; rising expenses; and inflation.

Wheeler speaks to many C-Suite leaders. What they are all talking about, she said, is inflation and affordability  and how both will impact their strategies.
