Improving staff satisfaction and retention

While many of these technology investments will help cardiologists ensure the financial health of their hospital and deliver high quality care, they will also help address one of the most urgent needs cited by respondents – the need to increase staff satisfaction and retention. Almost one-third (30%) of the cardiology leaders surveyed said these staff-related issues are a top priority, with almost as many (28%) believing staff satisfaction and retention would continue to be a top priority in three years’ time – figures that match the global averages for all healthcare leaders surveyed. Faced with a backlog of patients due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the expanding number of new patients, it appears that the world shortage of cardiologists to deal with them is something that is not going to go away. Clearly, cardiology leaders are looking to health tech companies and digital technologies for solutions.
