To say that IT departments have stepped up during the Covid-19 pandemic is quite the understatement, according to Lisa Stump and Chuck Christian, who discussed the tireless efforts of their teams in supporting care delivery during a recent webinar.
The Covid-19 pandemic hasn’t just transformed the way care is delivered – it has also dramatically changed the way people work, says Franciscan Health CTO Chuck Christian, who believes “we may never go back to the way things were.”
The delicate balance healthcare IT leaders face during the COVID-19 pandemic? Deciding how much change can be absorbed at once, says Chuck Christian, who talks about the strategy his team has adopted.
One thing COVID-19 has demonstrated? The healthcare industry will bounce back, but it’s never going to be quite the same – and in some ways, that’s a positive, says Chuck Christian, CTO at Franciscan Health.
The “definitive focus on patient record sharing” we’re seeing across the industry is certainly encouraging, but there are fundamental issues that must be addressed before we’re truly able to move forward with interoperability, says Chuck Christian.
