According to Zack Tisch in a recent article from Health Tech Magazine, hiring on-demand experts gives healthcare organizations quick (and scalable) bandwidth to tackle a range of important IT projects, allowing organizations to solve problems in weeks instead of months.
The lift is worth it for organizations seeking to launch complex initiatives that improve patient care and experience, says Zachary Tisch, vice president of strategic growth for Pivot Point Consulting. Such efforts may require knowledge-specific fields such as data analytics and population health.
“Using staff augmentation to bring in some expertise can build up those programs in large health systems through someone who can bring a plan and put the right governance around it,” Tisch says. “That person should serve a player/coach role.”
