Are you old enough to remember professional work life before the internet? If so, you know that way the world works has changed significantly – and will continue to do so for years to come. And yes, that includes healthcare. Although the industry has a reputation for lagging in innovation, more and more healthcare organizations are starting to embrace the digital revolution to improve operations, retain clinicians, and satisfy patients. To prove it, here are three examples of healthcare facilities taking the lead on workflow transformation – and reaping the rewards.
