Healthcare workforce shortages were a long-running challenge for nurse leaders, surgical and anesthesia chairs, and administrators even before the COVID-19 pandemic. The downstream effects of pandemic exacerbated these shortages and made staffing even more unpredictable, an issue which still continues for many health systems today.
To address this, health systems must find low-cost ways to empower and optimize the staff they already have, and to deploy those staffing resources proactively and with the highest possible impact. Many health system leaders are already innovating ways to achieve this by applying leading-edge technology, including predictive analytics and AI.
In this session, learn how technology can be used to support the existing healthcare workforce and address staffing shortages. Hear from the President and CEO of Henry Ford Health and the Chief Digital Officer of Allegheny Health Network as they discuss areas and roles where staffing and coverage challenges are greatest, strategies to alleviate staff burnout, and the role of AI tools in addressing staffing shortages. Participants will also hear feedback and questions from healthcare colleagues and explore the potential of technology to improve efficiencies in daily workflows.
