Welcome back guest blogger, Daniel Weberg, co-author of Leadership for Evidence-Based Innovation in Nursing and Health Professions for a new post on technology.
Although difficult, unraveling the care process across the healthcare system is necessary in order to identify specific areas where technology can enable care for the future and meet the triple aim. Healthcare systems that scrutinize this process can incorporate technology to decrease cost, improve patient experience, and improve overall population health. To affect change, leaders must be able to lead through ambiguity in order to see the patterns that signal change. Technology is a disruptor and it can motivate teams to create novel solutions to long held problems like those in the Triple Aim. The key for any leader is to understand how technology fits in. It’s seldom the only solution but rather a facilitator and catalyst to systemic change.
