HDOs face the challenges of a pandemic-ravaged economy, increasing regulatory demands, and a rapidly changing marketplace. HDO CIOs can create better options for their enterprise and free up budgets for innovation and transformation by reducing legacy overheads and risks associated with legacy IT.

This Gartner research report, recognizing Clearsense, provides key insights and recommendations for HDO CIOs seeking to modernize IT operations and legacy overhead and risks.

Key Findings

  • By definition, legacy systems represent the implementation of business requirements that no longer represent a domain or market, or an implemented technology that no longer meets a current business need with an acceptable ROI. Legacy systems have become candidates for replacement or obsolescence by next-generation or alternative solutions.
  • Pandemic-related business disruptions and an uncertain global economy are causing healthcare delivery organization (HDO) CIOs to double down on operational efficiency and ROI through cost-cutting and containment initiatives such as legacy decommissioning.

  • COVID-19 has further driven HDO CIOs to reevaluate their application portfolios’ agility and efficacy in light of interoperability and virtual care support, revealing new consolidation and decommissioning candidates in the acute and ambulatory spaces.
  • The cost and complexity of migrating or archiving legacy data have caused HDO CIOs to keep outmoded and defunct systems in service well past their useful life spans, creating unnecessary hardware, software licensing, maintenance, and support overheads and constraining funding for innovation and digital transformation initiatives.
