Healthcare as an industry is fragmented, made up of many disparate businesses, systems, settings, people, and processes. Also, many different stakeholders – doctors, nurses, technical specialists, social workers, researchers, scientists, administrators, lawyers, and lots of other professionals. But, all these fragmented parts and people work together to create one thing – human health and well-being.
Now, let’s think about the power of bees, pollination, and how all those tiny insects spread out across the earth and extract nectar from flowers, vegetables, fruits, and multiple varieties of plants to not only sustain humanity, but also to create something sweet and miraculous – honey. Nectar itself is the essential ingredient that when brought together by the fragmented masses, and then manipulated by the multitudes, becomes in the end, life-giving. It is said that bees, and what they do (not unlike humans that are in healthcare), are responsible for the very lifeblood of our food supply, and without them, humans would have a tough time surviving.
So, applying the analogy more directly, Nectar Strategic Consulting is interested in extracting that essential elixir resulting from the combined expertise of clinicians, business professionals, technology professionals, and others to:
- Enhance and optimize patient and family experiences,
- Improve the effectiveness and well-being of clinicians and care givers,
- Create and facilitate better patient outcomes, and
- Reduce healthcare costs while we’re at it.
Making aspects of healthcare digital only make sense if the outcome of that effort contributes to one of these goals. “Digital for digital’s sake” may result in something cool or unique, but if it doesn’t practically or naturally fit into work and care processes, care cadence, or make common sense, then it’s not effective. Therefore, our goal as a firm is to successfully collaborate within and across our client organizations in a multi-disciplinary way to truly transform experiences, making healthcare better, more accessible and more affordable every day.
The next time you have a particularly important or strategic initiative, where you need to pull lots of different stakeholders together to apply their valuable expertise, and where this initiative leverages technology as a key component, give us a call. We’re here to help.
