As we're trying to climb our way out of the pandemic, patients really need more than ever complex care and we have the ability to provide that. But just like you're seeing in different national media, inflation and the cost of taking care of patients has gone up. So a lot of us are still trying to figure out how do we climb out of not just the pandemic but really some of the financial challenges that I think we're all dealing with.
At the University of Kansas we're trying to figure out how do you not only use the data more effectively, but how do you gain efficiency out of it? We're applying a lot of different strategies, whether it's automation or aligning our teams differently. We're also doing more of the agile methodology within our Epic environment as well.
