Technology is intertwined in the way hospitals function and how they perform – their ability to reduce hospitalization times, enhance patient safety and deliver quality outcomes – but it is also critical in how they attract, support and motivate their staff.
“We don’t want to have technology just for technology’s sake,” says Barry T. Katzen, M.D., founder and Chief Medical Executive of the Institute. “There has to be some measurable, deliverable benefit to the patients, to the hospital system, to the people who work in the system, and so on."
“When you look at some of these benefits, they wind up resulting in reduced procedure time, reduced invasiveness and increasing ease of use. Having a high-end Ferrari in your hands but not knowing how to use it is kind of a real waste.”
