When High Tech Meets Healthcare

For a healthcare organization, especially a busy, world-class hospital that is integral in its community, delivering the best possible patient experience is not only paramount to its work, but also an earnest responsibility. Technology systems can play an important role in delivering great experiences. Technology also can either improve or hinder the hospital’s day-to-day operations; this is always top of mind for Williamson Health CIO Jeff Goad.

Aptitude’s John Cooper sat down with Goad to discuss the many challenges and opportunities Williamson Health and other healthcare facilities are facing when it comes to technology. The two discuss the hospital’s recent installation of its cutting-edge patient engagement solution and the many moving parts the IT team needed to consider before the system could be up and running. They also discuss hot topics such as technology system interoperability, cybersecurity, managing IT budgets, and how the term ‘digital transformation’ is often misused and misunderstood.
