Three trends that will define the future of healthcare

During 2022, we saw health systems make valiant efforts as they strive to achieve the Quintuple Aim against a backdrop of higher patient volumes, severe staff shortages, and shrinking margins. In 2023, it’s likely that we’ll see growing pressure to reduce costs as margins stay low and economic uncertainty continues. However, organizations cannot focus on […]

Rebuilding trust to empower the future of healthcare

Trust is at the center of every important personal or professional relationship and the foundation of lasting connections. Patient-clinician relationships are no different. Relationships that are anchored in trust lead to better diagnoses and treatments, improved compliance and outcomes, increased patient satisfaction, and greater patient willingness to seek care or preventive screenings.

2021 has been a challenging year for teams across the healthcare industry.

Honoring the hard and “heart” work of the nursing profession

Often when we talk about the healthcare industry at large, we focus on a number of topics, ranging the gamut from system pressures, burnout, and patient experience, to cost, infrastructure, and interoperability.  Certainly, there is an incredible amount of work we must continue to do to improve healthcare, but the reality is that while excellent healthcare is the result of a number of contributing factors, one aspect supersedes all else: strong, caring, […]

Inspired by Greatness: How Healthy Competition Moves the Quality of Care Forward

I’ve always been a big football fan.  There’s something incredibly exciting about watching so many players, each with their own unique strengths, working together to make a touchdown.  But what’s even more interesting to me is watching how the best teams change their approach, evolve, and get stronger after playing against the fiercest and most […]

Patient misidentification – solutions are insight

In 2007, The World Health Organization (WHO) published an article on the importance of accurate patient identification. Patient misidentification, they wrote, is the “root cause of many errors,” including the prescription of incorrect medication, flawed transfusions, testing errors, wrong person procedures, and the discharge of infants to the wrong families. To mitigate misidentification, the WHO […]

TechCares: how we rise to challenges defines us

When faced with serious, unexpected challenges, it’s natural for any of us as individuals to first ask, “What do I do?” But as members of multiple personal and professional communities, the single most important question we need to ask ourselves and those around us is: “How can we help?” That was the question that dominated […]

Keeping patients front and center with telehealth and ambient intelligence “helpers”

Since the pandemic took hold in the U.S., much has been written about the impact on patient volumes and disruption to preventative health and chronic disease management. The disruption causes concern for conditions that might go untreated but also indicates that patients are “probably seeking alternative levels of care for less acute things that they […]

The critical importance of keeping patients front and center in the healthcare IT space
