Vaccine Distribution Predictions with CIO Jeff Sturman

At Memorial healthcare our instruction of education, communication, and testing helped significantly and has been a unique success within nursing homes.
The challenge is to make telehealth an easy transition — we’ve used things like FaceTime and Zoom. We didn’t want to get in the way of providing care to patients as effectively as they choose.
You hear stories about behavioral issues and so much mental anguish coming out of schooling from home. I think the same thing applies to us as adults. Some can work very effectively from home. And some just can’t. So it’s really important as an employer to give them a hybrid world as an option.
We are piloting voice recognition in the hospital environment. Things as simple as turn my lights off, lower my shades, lower my temperature, talk to the nursing unit. We did this early in the pandemic to cut down on PPE, but I think each use case is going to show up broadly in hospital settings.

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