AHA Knowledge Exchange Report

Reinvention to Build a Future-Ready Health Care Workforce cover.Health systems must find a way to close the gap between supply and demand for care. Caregivers are burned out and leaving the workforce, but hiring more caregivers won’t solve the problem for the long term. The solution is to reinvent the nature of care delivery, according to a new AHA Knowledge Exchange report, “Reinvention to Build a Future-Ready Health Care Workforce.”

Other industries are scaling human labor with technology, and health care can do the same by using technology to lessen the burden on the health care workforce, the report explains. A combination of human + machine can increase efficiency for physicians, nurses and the nonclinical workforce so that they can meet the rising demand for care.

This AHA-member knowledge exchange explores how health leaders are rethinking work and adopting technology and artificial intelligence to help automate and optimize work, improve interoperability to reduce silos and increase speed, and help build agile teams. Moderated by Michelle Hood, AHA executive vice president and chief operating officer, the discussion includes leaders from Augusta Health, Fishersville, Virginia; Nuvance Health, Danbury, Connecticut; Atrium Health Cabarrus, Concord, North Carolina; Main Line Health, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania; and Kaveh Safavi, M.D., J.D., senior managing director of global health for Accenture.
