Sustainable solutions help more than the environment
Responsible health and life sciences organisations should look beyond traditional notions of green or sustainability. Organisations also need to rethink how to use digital technology to gain the greatest return on their investments. Our digital heritage and privileged access to Microsoft help you design sustainable solutions that improve operational agility, create people first experiences and build trust.
Reputation resiliency and trust
As healthcare and life sciences organisations become more resilient with digital, they have opportunities to operate with greater agility, efficiency and security.
For example, using the internet of things (IoT) to build digital twins of properties, from drug discovery to manufacturing, can reduce consumption and increase energy efficiency.
Digital innovation can be used to put people first. This means is using technology to help simplify tasks, increase care team collaboration and provide the best care experience possible whether in the hospital or talking with a patient from home.
For example, virtual patient visits or telemedicine helps clinicians and researchers with tools to efficiently care for patients at home. It enables virtual collaboration among care teams and, when done right, can lower consumption of supplies and reduce travel that leads to less stress on people.
In a recent study, 76% of healthcare workers reported exhaustion and burnout. Digital tools such as virtual patient visits and remote patient monitoring can help improve work-life balance and improve retention of clinicians and staff.
Trust is the currency of the care experience. To be a leader, healthcare and life sciences organisations need to define a more equitable and transparent healthcare ecosystem.
More than ever, consumers, providers and employees will distrust organisations that don’t deliver transparency and demonstrate their commitments to meet safety and security standards.
Cloud and data-driven solutions provide the transparency required to enable solutions from more resilient supply chains to trusted data insights for increased patient engagement and better outcomes.
While there is still much work to be done, health and life sciences leaders worldwide are making sustainability part of their DNA.
