Part 2: Diving Deeper into the Power of Connection


In Part 1, we introduced the importance of the power of connection and how fostering these connections can improve patient outcomes. We also discussed the importance of people, processes, and technology regarding connection. This article dives deeper into the transformative potential of connection and how people, processes, and technology rely on one another.

Human Capital Drives Innovation

Healthcare innovation requires collaboration between multiple diverse people and teams. This means that healthcare professionals with different backgrounds and experiences can work together to create more personalized patient solutions. Furthermore, this interdisciplinary collaboration within healthcare often leads to breakthroughs in treatments and the development of innovative technologies, ultimately advancing patient outcomes. Therefore, clinicians that work together often help drive novel treatments and technologies. These new technologies drive innovation and advance patient outcomes.

Additionally, having professionals from different backgrounds helps bring awareness to different beliefs and presumptions. For instance, a diverse developmental team can prevent unintentional bias in the algorithm [1]. This helps ensure that innovation in technology doesn’t create more barriers for minorities. Additionally, this helps patients feel more connected with their doctors and secure that their individual needs are being met and respected. Therefore, collaboration promotes innovation, trust, and better patient outcomes.


Processes Enabling Collaboration

Effective processes help drive collaboration due to the streamlined workflows and interdisciplinary teams. Creating processes with clear communication channels makes it easier for professionals to collaborate. Furthermore, setting up processes and guidelines for sharing data makes it easier to understand and access data being shared. This helps foster continuous collaboration between healthcare teams, which promotes positive health outcomes for patients.

connection from processes

One way to create processes that enable collaboration is by ensuring that functional requirements are met. Functional requirements ensure that the user’s inputs are considered during software development [2]. This often requires processes to have detailed planning and structures. Furthermore, processes must focus on the needs set by stakeholders so that expected deliverables are met [2]. Various software development life cycles can be used [2], but the overall goal is to ensure that people are considered in the process and that they are not burdened by new changes. Therefore, processes should streamline workflows and ensure that collaboration is possible between various teams. 


Technologies Empower People and Processes

Technology acts as a driver to improve healthcare delivery and facilitates effective communication between care professionals. Technology also makes it easier to exchange data and collaborate between stakeholders. This means that new technologies can be created with human-centered design in mind. Furthermore, digital health tools better connect patients with providers and allow data to be shared seamlessly. Furthermore, AI provides real-time insights and enables proactive interventions and personalized care. Therefore, technology allows healthcare organizations to optimize processes and empower doctors to collaborate.

Importance of Power of Connection

In conclusion, the transformative potential of connection is evident in the symbiotic relationship between people, processes, and technology. Each component relies on one another to drive innovation and collaboration. The ultimate goal of the power of connection is to enhance the delivery of healthcare services. Therefore, it’s important to recognize how important connection is in healthcare. This is because connection drives positive change, fosters innovation, and promotes patient-centric care.
