Digitalization is a matter for the boss


Cologne, November 9, 2021 – The digital world offers companies the opportunity to reinvent themselves. Disruptive or evolutionary – development steps are possible at a pace that seemed unimaginable just 10 years ago. But as diverse as the possibilities are, the right and targeted selection of digitalization measures is just as complex.

To successfully drive digitalization forward, corporate management must develop a strategy that involves all levels in the process and gives the company a holistic orientation. This is the only way to exploit the potential offered by digital developments.

For a clinic Dr. Schönheit + Partner (S + P) developed a comprehensive digitalization strategy. The initial analysis of the current situation showed that the support processes, such as the logistical supply and monitoring of medications, medical supplies, sterile goods, etc., offer the greatest potential for comprehensively increasing the digital maturity of the clinic. Above all, this means more time for employees to focus on core processes: this not only improves patient care, but also increases the clinic's performance holistically. The analysis of the current status served as the basis for the target image of digitalization in the clinic, which S + P developed together with the clinic management, as well as the definition of technical and organizational solutions for the fields of action.

The project services included in detail:

  • Identification of the digitalization fields and prioritization of the fields with the greatest potential
  • Technology screening for the digitalization fields and potential assessment of the technologies as well as derivation of necessary organizational measures
  • Cost estimate for measures in the individual digitalization fields
  • Development of a roadmap for implementing the digitalization solutions and for a holistic roll-out

The holistic view of the clinic made it possible to coordinate the technical and organizational changes and generate synergy effects. Parallel to the integration of new infrastructures, the digital competence of the employees in the individual areas is now being expanded in a targeted manner in order to comprehensively and rapidly increase the digital maturity level of the clinic.
