Healthcare has dealt with staffing shortages for years, and when COVID-19 arrived, the challenges became acute. Despite significant IT investments, process efficiency benefits have been elusive because staff or patients are still required to do additional work to make the technology perform. Now, as virtual care takes hold with patients, a new “third gear” is beginning to emerge.

In this episode of Digital Conversations, Greg Johnsen and Greg Kefer discuss digital patient engagement, and specifically how conversational technology takes on a new role as a digital worker that handles the communications and administrative aspects of delivering and receiving care. As armies of digital assistants become high-scale, efficient solutions that relieve overworked human teams, while simultaneously helping patients navigate to successful outcomes, we will begin to see important new KPIs emerge that measure digital engagement effectiveness.
