Adjusting Clinical Workflows for Digital

Everybody figured out what you and I have known for 10 years, that telehealth is probably a better way to deliver medicine. I personally hated all the pandemic discussions on oh look at all the innovation that people have come up with. Most of it I didn’t see as innovation. We were adapting the things we already had available. We just did it really, really quickly.
The overarching strategy in healthcare is that we’re just trying to solve problems with solutions, not technology. It sometimes takes a lot of technology to make those things happen but the hospitals, the clinicians and the patients shouldn’t have to think about that.
Necessity is the mother of invention. And so people are accelerating what they’re doing today, which is incredible. What friends in the industry are doing in the last two or three weeks is probably more than they’ve done, from a change perspective in the last two or three years.
When I’m talking to friends in the industry in 2020, what they’ve done in the last two or three weeks is probably more than they’ve done from a change perspective in the last two or three years!

Amplify great thinking to propel healthcare forward and raise up the next generation of health leaders.
