This year’s Virtual Dude University brought together over 100 healthcare operations professionals from hospitals, acute care and senior living organizations. The healthcare track of this year’s conference included 14 sessions, and all kicked off with an industry connect event led by The Dude’s own Josh Malbogat, Sr. Director Sales for Healthcare and Kyle Adamo, Director, Product Management for Healthcare. Combined they have over 40 years of experience in the healthcare sector.
If you weren’t able to join us for this year’s event, Josh & Kyle shared their insights on the state of healthcare and how the pandemic has impacted our clients, and in turn influenced the development and support teams of TheWorxHub™.
Here were some of the biggest takeaways across the healthcare industry.
And across all healthcare organizations, the biggest theme was resilience.
Whether it was shifting regular operations and facility spaces, or finding funding, staff and PPE, our clients found new and innovative ways to do whatever it took to create safe environments for patients, residents and staff.
As one our guest keynote speakers, Gary Milewski, Corporate Manager Plant Engineering Compliance from Novant Health, said, “if the building is not working right, then you can’t take care of the patients... Everybody has a particular piece of the ‘cog’ to keep it running, otherwise the hospital is going to fail.” All of you on this call were responsible for taking care of the building. You had to get creative. You had to innovate and show resilience to ensure the facility/communities are healthy."
These key themes have made an impact on those that develop and support TheWorxHub, as well. As Kyle mentioned in the session, we strive to work right alongside our clients to innovate and provide the technology and support to help you stay ahead.
Some of the enhancements we’ve made recently to TheWorxHub to help with this include:
