DiscoverOrg Rolls-Out Top 1200 Healthcare and Hospital System IT Database on Heels of $19 Billion Federal Appropriation for Health Care IT

DiscoverOrg, the nation’s leader in IT Intelligence on Fortune 2000 companies, Government Agencies and Universities has announced that they have expanded their scope and reach by covering the top 1200 Healthcare and Hospital System IT organizations in the United States.

The new dataset capitalizes on the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which includes over $19 billion for Health Care Information Technology. The bill signed into law by President Obama provides financial incentives for doctors and hospitals to use e-medical records, and strengthens privacy protections for individuals’ health records, requires notifications when data is breached, and requires Medicare providers receiving subsidies to file clinical quality reports and create programs to support education and training of health IT professionals and health IT research and development. The bill also provides for close to $3 billion in grants, loans, and other programs to help health care providers purchase health IT systems.

“We have been closely watching the passage of the stimulus bill and have been rapidly building our database of the Top 1200 Health Care and Hospital Systems in the United States so that our technology vendor customers can be a step ahead of their competition in connecting with the key IT decision makers at these hospital and health care companies,” said Henry Schuck, Vice President and General Counsel at DiscoverOrg.

“In tough economic times, our customers are looking for ways to be more efficient and reach out to prospective customers who have budget to spend on information technology and the ARRA makes it clear that the Healthcare industry will be spending money on IT,” Schuck added.

Some of the 1200 Top Grossing Hospital and Health Care Systems included in DiscoverOrg’s database include the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Tenet Health Care, Kaiser Permanente, UCLA Medical Center, and New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Weil Cornell Medical Center.

The newly gathered information includes contact data with direct dial phone numbers, verified email addresses, and precise org charts on the key IT decision makers at the country’s 1200 largest Hospital and Healthcare systems.

The DiscoverOrg service also provides deep intelligence on each decision maker in the database explaining exactly what their function is and what technologies and services they care about. The data is updated rigorously with the entire database fully swept several times a year.
