Collaboration is essential to those working in the fields of medical and life sciences, yet it is often difficult to create a productive, remote working environment with today’s tools. So how can researchers working on projects in different parts of the world, boost collaborative opportunities and hasten the delivery of groundbreaking research to the medical community? It turns out that interactive displays might just be the answer to a smoother more team-driven workflow.
Healthcare has the reputation for being slow to explore and implement new technology. With digital innovation happening quickly, it’s clear that the healthcare industry needs to adapt to be successful. Utilizing machines and new technologies offers professionals a way to organize and collaborate, all while continuing to provide patient care.
“Have machines do what they are really good at, and have humans do what they are really good at, and bring that clinical perspective to curating the datasets,” said Marta Bralic, vice president of business development at Flatiron Health. “If you don’t do that, there is a bunch of missing-ness and a bunch of holes.”
An interactive display can revolutionize the way medical teams analyze patient data and collaborate across departments, all while including remote teams from around the globe in important discussions. Using an interactive display, like Prysm’s LPD 6K, a state of the art solution, medical and life sciences researchers can include specialists based in different countries and can collaborate on any project, with up 15 colleagues in real-time. The ability to engage with teams around the world can be an invaluable tool for medical teams encountering a difficult case.
“There’s now a premium on teamwork and collaboration, as opposed to older schools of thought that incentivized individual success and intelligence,” stated Darrin Brooks, Director of Strategic Engagements at Prysm, in a recent interview with Modern Marketing Today. “Companies realized that better solutions come out of groups that work together, so now we are faced with the challenge of incentivizing and improving the circumstances for that group behavior.”
Leading pharmaceutical companies are also utilizing interactive displays to collaborate with multiple departments, enhance communications, and reduce the time-to-market on products. Digital initiatives are being enacted to stay current with the technical revolution occurring in the healthcare industry.
Doug Compton, CIO and vice president of operations for PhRMA says, “Its touch-enabled, 190 inch-diagonal screen adds a dynamic element to the many high-profile meetings we have in this room. When our staff walks into the room, they are connected and actively participate and engage in meetings.”
The LPD 6k and other interactive displays can transform the way the healthcare industry operates by creating an open workflow that allows for collaboration anywhere. A study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine titled Building New Ways to Work Together: Report of a Workshop, suggests that collaboration between laboratories and professors or universities can benefit the mission of a laboratory by extending the capabilities of those involved to answer key questions and conduct peer-reviewed research, all things interactive displays would make possible.
