Commonsense Health Providers are always seeking to improve processes. The Health dilemma for many countries is that while there has been an increase in health service demand, there has also been a decline/aging of skilled staff able to provide many of the services needed.
This has created pressure on scarce resources that is forcing health providers to look to IT innovation to bridge the gap.
Commonsense Health Providers are seeking Efficient Processes
Community Health providers in particular know they need to be bold and try to find new ways of doing things. There simply isn’t time for inefficient processes and misuse of skilled staff, who are often still laden down with cumbersome paper processes almost reminiscent of the 19th century.
So how do we meet the needs of the community staff for intuitive solutions that
- actually work for them and their patients,
- are within budget guidelines, and
- don’t over burden already highly committed IT staff.
How do we measure the effectiveness?
The best advice I heard today at the HINZ conference in Rotorua NZ, is that we have to put our sensible hats on. Yes, there is a lot of cool stuff out there, but does it make a difference to patient outcomes?
Will it reduce the pressure on hospital specialist beds, eliminate long delays at the Emergency Departments, help to retain qualified staff. How is it’s effectiveness being measured and what are the criteria for purchasing.
I’ve long been a believer in the 6 Serving Men:
- What is it we want to solve/fix?
- Who will it benefit?
- When can we have it?
- Where can we best use this?
- How do we make this work for us?
- WHY are we doing this?
