5 Key Takeaways
- Meeting healthcare employers all around the world and being a part of many different transformation initiatives gives insight, urgency, and a habit of constantly evolving and transforming for the better. The consumer’s experience needs to be the focus of all healthcare systems.
- Empowerment of the consumer is often lacking, especially during the difficult journeys they go through in receiving a diagnosis for cancer or a tumor. Think about the financial, emotional, mental, and physical burdens they receive. They need more support in all of those areas.
- There are 3 key elements to making transformation easier and more effective within organizations: having the right vision and purpose, driving the urgency, and planning for the transformation to be sustainable.
- Many organizations face opposition and failure in executing transformation initiatives when transformation is viewed as a negative event, the vision and communication is vague and unclear, or there is not a thorough plan.
- There are many different facets to the innovation that needs to be made in healthcare: using data effectively, delivering value-based care, creating engageable methods and identifications, targeting the consumer to actually act on information, coordinating the proper care, and sharing information. The biggest obstacle to innovation in these different areas is the complicated structure within most healthcare organizations.
