With clinician burnout and healthcare’s ongoing human resource challenges, technologies must promote workforce well-being and improve the staff experience. A 2021 PwC global survey4 of workers found that 80% of the workers surveyed are confident they can adapt to new technologies entering their workplace. And just like patients, clinicians expect technology that will enable them to focus on their core role—providing patient care.
A single source of truth for clinical information eliminates data silos and data fragmentation to create more seamless experiences for healthcare professionals, presenting relevant clinical information within their workflow to support informed decision-making. Additionally, technology introduces clinical decision support, evidence, and best practices.
