Every healthcare organization is different, but these three focus areas are a good place to start:
Technology infrastructure – The tools and technology that support your healthcare organization should help increase efficiency, not slow you down. As healthcare embraces new care delivery and reimbursement models, it will be increasingly important to equip your employees with technology that is agile. Ask yourself: can my organization’s current technology and tools help achieve the following?
Workstyle innovation – As hospitals are expected to do more with less, the way they collaborate within and across departments will likely have a big impact on pace and care quality. Real-time communication and collaboration demands information mobility - the ability to capture, manage and transform information when and where it is needed. Make sure care givers have remote access to applications, including from their mobile devices, and are able to find and integrate information from different platforms.
