Giving Your Physicians the Right Tools Improves Engagement: Collaboration and Connectivity
Updated: Nov 12, 2021
Staffing challenges post-pandemic are driven by a number of factors, but one of the most significant is turnover due to burnout. And diving deeper, a primary driver for burnout is isolation. How is your team ensuring that your clinicians feel a sense of community with your practice?
Today’s hospitals and medical practices can promote a sense of collaboration between their physicians, administrators, and staff through the help of technology. Without the help of technology, even the process of scheduling physicians can become chaotic and disjointed, requiring multiple emails from multiple people and many delays, leaving physicians even more frustrated. Hospital administrators and medical directors also have little time for what is called “incremental communication,” taking care of little issues that may arise throughout the day that makes the operations of the organization run much more smoothly. Despite that it can get put on the back burner, collaboration and connectivity are integral to a thriving healthcare organization that keeps physicians engaged.
The Kimedics mobile app can help foster collaboration and connectivity for healthcare organizations of all sizes. Kimedics’ simple and user-friendly app brings together many of the collaborative tasks that physicians need to carry out on a day-to-day basis, allowing them to easily connect with the right people in the organization to get them done. It’s a single source of truth for the organization’s most pertinent information and a hub that connects employees wherever they may be at any given moment. Whether it’s facilitating collaboration with a scheduler, medical director, or other physicians, the Kimedics app helps create a sense of community for the medical group while reducing the stress of administrative tasks.
Feedback from clinicians:
“The app is very easy to use. My schedule is right at my fingertips all the time which makes scheduling other parts of my life easier.”
