Billian Publishing Inc. announced today the launch of its latest affiliate HITR.com—a healthcare IT benchmarking and social networking community for healthcare providers and vendors. HITR, which stands for Health Information Technology Research, offers meaningful research targeted towards stakeholders of healthcare IT. This web-based tool offers its members easy-to-understand customer satisfaction scores for nearly 40 IT systems and 300 vendors. Through its unique survey and social networking platform, HITR.com can identify timely research topics, conduct custom research through the HITR audience, and make the results of that research actionable to HITR's members.
Providers can use HITR.com's survey tool to evaluate potential vendors, benchmark employee satisfaction with IT systems within their own healthcare facilities, and compare themselves with their peers at other institutions across healthcare IT, financial and quality performance data. After taking surveys, provider members can access rewards in the form of financial and quality performance comparison data on peer facilities -- a benchmarking tool that can help to further establish best practices at hospitals.
