For rural healthcare leaders, having to wear multiple hats is one of the biggest challenges. It’s also, however, one of the key benefits when it comes to professional development, says Kate Pierce.
Having to balance the needs of multiple stakeholder groups is already tough. What makes it even more challenging? When those groups have competing priorities, says Steven Posnack, Deputy National Coordinator for Health IT.
“We are masters in healthcare at workarounds,” says Robin Lang, CIO at CaroMont Health. Which makes it all the more critical for health IT leaders to have the pulse of their users and understand what’s working, and what isn’t.
At some point in our careers, most of us have hit a low point – or even rock bottom. What distinguishes successful individuals is the ability to learn from the experience, says Kate Gamble.
As digital tools become more critical to operations, it’s becoming increasingly important to develop a more “coherent and structured” process that can give health IT leaders the knowledge and experience they need, says Will Smart.
