Elevating Information Sharing to a Whole New Level
By Arvind Rampurada, Associate Director, NYU Langone Health
Today, with a rapid increase in its growth rate and productivity, our organization is spread out across New York. This geographical expansion allows our workforce to work in multiple locations rather than sticking to a single location, thereby giving way to numerous challenges alongside benefits.
Even though technology is considered as the centerpiece, I believe our customers and the end users are the primary factors who lead to the development of technology
To address these challenges, we encourage our end users to embrace various methods of communication, a combination of telephone, video, texting, instant chat, social media accessibility amongst others. Additionally, we also avail collaboration tools for our teams so that it is not a single channel anymore.
Another challenge we face is the communication within the organization, across the leadership teams and the cross-functional teams. This has led us to provide and leverage virtual meeting spaces, which aids in saving a lot of time. We provide video conferencing, which is more interactive and immersive than ever before, giving primary importance to the physical presence that just the voice. The video calls comprehend the gestures of the person along with the emotional response to comments and ideas. This enables a better communication within our team.
Even though technology is considered as the centerpiece, I believe our customers and the end users are the primary factors who lead to the development of technology. The perspective of what the user requires and requests is the only consideration while implementing latest tools, unified communication, and collaboration mechanism. We empathize with our customers, observe their habits, and collect enough data and analyze it to finally derive at the right solution, which will help our end users to do their best. It should be noted that any decision of choosing a technology or an approach is purely based on the information received and we make sure to value the opinion of every member irrespective of the level or department considering them equal.
It has always been a priority for our organization to build a world-class system irrespective of the level the system has to function. This echoes in our developmental procedures and thought processes for innovation excellence. Furthermore, we have a strong team of leaders who encourage us to build a reliable and highly redundant tool or system that is excellent. Unlike other players in the industry we do not focus on cost-cutting, rather our primary motto has always been to provide the best class patient care, educational systems, and research elements.
Stepping Stones to Success
By imbibing the qualities of a coach rather than a leader, I make sure to provide my employees with the flexibility to come up with ideas and creativity rather than suggesting their plan of action. To inspire my colleagues on how to do things in a certain way, I would rather not impose ideas.
I would suggest upcoming leaders to follow the same root of inspiring co-workers to choose their own creative path. Additionally, consider ‘curiosity’ and ‘satisfaction’ as two major values throughout your career. Curiosity is essential to learn more and imbibe a culture of innovation for the future of the organization.
