It takes many, many years for modern digital practice to be folded into clinician training. You would think that they're learning all the digital tools. Remote patient monitoring and virtual care, but they're not. When my wife was picking her dissertation, I said pick virtual care, pick digital medicine, because that is the future.
Trust has eroded in so many different verticals. You've seen the reports, especially in politics. The one that has been maintained is doctors and nurses. They have always had trust. So I would leverage that trust and really make sure my clinicians felt like their job had meaning and that they have the ability to influence the organization.
