In this episode, Tamara StClaire discusses how The Blockchain has the potential to replace and re-architect many incumbent systems to remove friction and provide for new business models, greater efficiencies and trust in healthcare. Several applications being explored are: master patient identification, autonomous auto-adjudication, longitudinal patient history, interoperability, supply chain management, clinical trials, and unleashing data for research. Stakeholders are starting to align and collaborate in unique ways to bring together the ecosystem and brain trust that could allow us to realize new opportunities. Innovative startups are playing in this space and are cutting a wide swath in the industry. Even with this rosy outlook, there are still technical challenges as well as cultural/philosophical hurdles to widespread adoption and implementation.
In this episode, Vicki Shillington shares how organizations have typically been structured with employees recognized simply as the cogs in the system, managers the zookeepers and work as the daily grind. Humanity has literally been designed out of our organizations over the past few decades. In the past, there wasn’t much one could do about it, organizations could pretty much treat employees however they wanted.
Today that is no longer the case.
Looking through the lens of the employee, what they see as the company’s culture is a manifestation of who you hire, fire, and promote. This is increasingly important in the digital era when 50 percent of the workforce will be made up of millennials by 2020, who crave impact and meaning. This number jumps to 75 percent by 2025. When employees join a company where people don’t manifest the values it cares about, they feel lied to, betrayed and cheated.
During the first 90 days, employees are assessing the environment and whether it is what they signed up for. They are assessing whether the right talent is being hired, people are promoted fairly and bad behaviors are addressed. If not, they become increasingly resentful. As the company grows employees begin to act according to what their Leaders either actively reinforce through praise and promotion or passively reinforce by allowing to happen. Would they have joined the company had they seen which colleagues are getting hired, fired, or promoted?
In this episode, Sajid Ahmed discusses the proliferation in innovation via Artificial Intelligence (AI) and workflow design. He shares how this technology will help accurately diagnose many conditions and provide convenient access to care by delivering a multitude of solutions to healthcare organizations looking to improve healthcare delivery. While AI is receiving industry buzz and covers over half of the floor space at technology and healthcare conferences it is not a new technology. The U.S. Military Medical Command was an early adopter in using it for advanced diagnostic technologies by emulating logical inferences of cognition and intuition theory. AI will continue to become mainstream in our lives and be as ubiquitous as the Internet and our smart devices in our daily lives.
