Giving Compass’ Take:
• Health care leaders from across the U.S. share their thoughts about the technology and innovations that will move the industry forward.
• The focus is always centered around the main question: How can we find better ways to help people? We can’t ignore the human element, even as we strive to make hospitals and health systems more efficient.
• Read about why more baby boomers want to invest in health care causes.
Healthcare organizations continually strive to implement fresh and creative ideas to help them achieve success.
Becker’s Hospital Review asked health care leaders to share the most innovative idea they’ve implemented. Below are their responses.
“I believe the people at the bedside working on the front lines of patient care often have the best ideas for change. That’s why we launched an initiative called iGenerate, a virtual suggestion box where employees are encouraged to submit their best ideas for improving processes, streamlining operations, enhancing revenue and reducing costs, among other improvements.” — Erin Asprec, Executive Vice President of Acute Care Services and Chief Transformation Officer at Memorial Hermann Health System (Houston, Texas)
“One of the things I’m passionate about is an area in healthcare that is often referred to as either patient satisfaction or the patient experience, which is measured by the government. But beyond the measurement and the scores — taking it to a deeper level — is the question of can you teach or institute empathy or compassion into your culture or is it something some people have, and some people don’t. I believe the former. I believe you can.” — Marc Belcastro, Vice President and CMO of Premier Health Miami Valley Hospital (Dayton, Ohio)
