Creating the Digital Workplace: Closing the Gaps between Vision and Reality
Add this event during your HIMSS20 registration

The digital transformation aims to improve health and care provision with a very simple but powerful promise: the right information in the right place at the right time. The technology to exchange and leverage health data is available and there are significant advances in that directions made in the Middle East. But is technology enough? Are health professionals ready and onboard with this transformation? Are professional development efforts aligned with the need to evolve skillsets as well as mindsets? Are workflows and processes making the most of the digital workplace? In the Middle East like in most places around the world, there is still a gap we need to close between the vision from the top and the daily reality of clinicians’ practice. Beyond technology, this Summit will discuss how we can continue advancing the digital workplace and promote the broad and happy adoption of health innovations.
