In 2019, 93% of hospitals offer patients the option to view their medical records online. That’s up from only 27% of hospitals in 2012.
Technology has changed the way health care providers do business. But to benefit from the tech you use at your organization, you have to start with a great foundation—seamless implementation of your new program or system.
Are you planning to deploy a new medical lending program at your hospital? Keep reading to discover our top 3 tips for seamless introduction of new technology.
1. Set Goals
Before any new implementation, you should first set SMART goals and KPIs to measure your success. This also includes coming up with a strategy for introducing your staff to the new technology. As long as both you and your staff understand the short- and long-term goals of the new deployment, you can combat pushback against the change before it happens.
2. Start Small
When it comes to deploying new software, it’s always best to do a trial run in a smaller department. That way, you can get all the kinks worked out before carrying out the full implementation. You’ll also have a small group of staff that can serve as leaders during the training of other departments.
3. Choose Leaders
A good technology vendor will help train you and your staff on the new program. But a great technology vendor helps you choose leaders from your staff who will answer questions, support coworkers, and keep morale high. Your chosen leaders should always be in the know when issues arise so they can lead the way when you aren’t around to do it yourself.
