Innovation will never replace patient care as a priority. But, when approached the right way, it can “help surface more and better mechanisms for taking care of patients,” says Dr. Hank Capps, who talks about his strategy at Wellstar Health.
“There’s no longer going to be a distinction among acute, ambulatory and virtual; it’s going to be one care ecosystem,” said Hank Capps, MD, in a recent podcast. And that means the ability to be nimble and shift “is going to be really important.”
The more connected IT and digital are within an organization, the more effectively leaders can look at the technology space strategically – rather than in silos, says Shally Pannikode of WellStar Health System.
Both clinicians and IT professionals struggle in translating their particular needs to one another. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Taylor Davis, who discusses how the Arch Collaborative is working to narrow the gap.
