Amidst this changing environment, healthcare organisations are compelled to improve the quality of care delivery without necessarily augmenting cost. This goal of enhancing patient experience creates more pressure on physicians who, in addition to serving a rising population of patients with complex conditions, also need to work on documentation and other regulatory requirements. Indeed, these days, it is not uncommon for physicians to work up until midnight to keep pace with their workloads.
Moreover, many provider organisations do not yet have the modern technology needed to analyse the vast troves of information collected from various sources, including wearables, mobile devices, remote sensors, and genomics. Effective collaboration at an organisational level is key to improving healthcare processes/workflows and facilitating more efficient care. Healthcare staff, including physicians, other medical professionals, and IT personnel must be made to understand the roles and responsibilities of other team members.
Closer coordination between the clinicians and IT personnel, in particular, will enable provider organisations to utilise the latest technologies to streamline the workflows and reduce the workloads of physicians. Such collaboration will strengthen professional relationships and more importantly will contribute to the health of patients.
