Knowledge of health IT systems is the most desirable skill for hospital C-suite positions, according to a new Black Book report, EHR Intelligence reports.

The report was based on survey responses of 1,515 industry stakeholders, who ranked the most sought after skills for hospital executives.

According to the report, technology and data systems management knowledge was the most important skill identified for almost all chief officer positions. In addition, about 80% of hospitals with more than 200 beds “relied on an internal, C-level executive” to lead their vendor selections and IT implementations.
