The lasting impact of COVID is that the people who support health IT are trusted partners and can be insightful resources to the organization. This concept of situational awareness and becoming a real time health care system is absolutely critical. We are in an era where we have to really demonstrate exponential improvement whether it's in quality, safety, patient experience, affordability.
We have a pretty rich data warehouse that we were able to leverage to build even more capability as we worked through the pandemic. And we've continued to grow that capability to continue the rituals and processes that have been instrumental in supporting expedient decision-making across a complicated healthcare organization.
Scripps Health’s four key areas of focus are digital health roadmap, the real-time health system as a concept for a digital command center, analytics and reporting and a really deep preoccupation with information security.
