For healthcare IT leaders, recruiting and retaining a strong workforce has proven extremely challenging. But for some, it’s also an “opportunity for innovation and thinking differently,” said Theresa Meadows, speaking on a CHIME panel with John Glaser and Andrea Daugherty.
When we asked a handful of influential leaders – including Craig Richardville, Liz Johnson, and Kate Pierce – how CHIME has impacted their careers, the answers varied, but one central theme kept coming to the surface: collaboration.
With shortages looming, “There is no more important time to empower our nurses to innovate and generate new clinical care models supported by technology,” said CIO Terri Couts, one of several leaders who shares thoughts on the value of nurses.
What topics do leaders look forward to discussing at CHIME21? Liz Johnson, Aaron Miri, Buddy Hickman and others share their perspectives on what they believe will be the hot topics, and why getting together in person is so important to them.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, healthcare organizations were granted an opportunity to test the viability of telehealth on a large scale. And while so far it has been a success, what happens next is most important, says Liz Johnson.
