The way we work, live and learn has changed fundamentally. After about two years where the workers have mostly worked from home, hybrid work to stay here.
Especially in healthcare, we are seeing the rapid pace of innovation in technology. Hybrid workAn idea previously reserved for technology companies and forward-thinking employers, has been adopted with great success in healthcare.
In March, Cisco took part Annual Conference of Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Where we demonstrated the power of hybrid work through our interactive patient and provider experience. We encourage you to take Virtual Tour To see how technology can have a positive impact on the care journey.
Why do hybrids work?
Health workers are in crisis. Almost Since the onset of the epidemic, 20% of healthcare workers have quit their jobsAnd 49% of these individuals cited burnout as their main reason for leaving the healthcare sector.
The epidemic has raised awareness in our society about mental and behavioral health problems caused by stress, isolation and loss of social communication and community. Although the general public has deeply felt the effects of this condition, the medical population has been the most extreme victim of this condition.
If not addressed immediately, moral trauma (Clinician burnoutClinical satisfaction in the workplace and around the quality of care delivery will have a major impact on the future of healthcare.
In order for our society to truly address the issues facing ethical trauma for our critical healthcare workers – we need to change the health care system, and keep an increased focus on staff experience and well-being.
The time is now for our clinicians and care team to reconsider at work, spend less time understanding their administration, and equip patients with the technology they need to communicate with patients or disconnect from work for emotional and physical breaks.
How can care be delivered in a hybrid setting?
For healthcare companies, the hybrid job offer can help retain workforce and reduce clinician burnout by enabling physicians and staff to move around in the environment-care facility of their choice, at home, or in the location.
Providing healthcare in a hybrid environment is one of the most common ways we have seen Telehealth Patients and providers may be in the most convenient position during counseling. For patients, telehealth means on-demand care and quick access to their required providers and specialists. For suppliers, telehealth can mean better schedule concentration and less travel between hospitals, clinics and their homes. And the reason Webex Instant Connect Integrating existing electronic health records, telehealth adoption is simplified.
Another area where we have seen significant effects of hybrid work Digital front door. The digital front door is a universal patient engagement tool, which reduces the burden on staff for scheduling and improves patient choice and sharing decisions.
How does hybrid work improve the clinician experience?
As I’ve already shared, hybrid work helps reduce the burden that often falls on providers. But hybrid work can also enhance care delivery skills.
Clinical communication and collaboration Allows care providers to communicate across a care facility or at different locations within the facility and home. If a nurse’s call is to reach the supplier, they can do so through secure messaging and calling. This means that the provider can consult remotely and quickly and effectively.
Through us Hybrid workforce In use, we can help healthcare companies collaborate and operate effectively, regardless of their location, providing remote and secure connections within the operational domain.
One final area where hybrid work is being adopted in healthcare is through remote skills. Use Webex Remote Specialist on Demand Associated with augmented reality devices, specialists may share knowledge and skills with educationally qualified students, or with trainers in remote areas where an expert may not be available. This technology can also be used to connect remote experts to the frontline, enabling frontline staff to see what they are seeing as they perform their work.
Start hybrid work
In HIMSS 2022, we must see that hybrid work is the future of healthcare. Although the industry initially adopted hybrid work as a means of providing care during epidemics, healthcare companies are realizing the value of hybrid work in improving the financial and environmental benefits of hybrid work as well as improving patient and physician experience.
It’s all connected, the patient experience, the physician experience and the economics of providing care. Cisco is bringing digital care delivery and hybrid work value, one workflow at a time.
