We've probably all been subject to change in our model of work.
In terms of the content, the context, and the way we work. Although the "Future of Work" has been the subject of debate of exploration, studies, I sense this pandemic has fast-forwarded some of the elements of it.
Next to a more widely adopted digital way of work, including in health(care) where video-consultation has become the norm for a while at least, it also brings challenges. Like many of us are missing the social interaction at the office, even though meeting people in real life we've not seen for months other than online, does not feel really disconnected. Also, the small talk adjacent to a meeting to quickly align, explore thoughts, or to exchange experiences is absent in an online-only world.
In some counties, at least for the moment, it seems like it is safe to gradually re-open up some meetings in real life and going back to the office. But what are the models for this? Will it be just like before? Or do we need to re-think about the impact on the environment, our daily life is 'living' at the office the only way to the future.
I doodled my thoughts about a possible new office-time schedule below, curious about your thoughts! Let me know in the comments, please.
It is at the intersection of technology and patient empowerment, which is where Lucien Engelen (1962), director of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre REshape Center and advisor to the Board of Directors (since 2007) feels most at home. The two worlds combined into the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and Singularity University in Silicon Valley & the Netherlands and in the Nordics, his modus operandi is always challenging, sometimes provocative but always techno-realistic. Writing on a new book that will be titled "Augmented Health(care)™ : The end of the beginning" (May 2018, Barcelone Spain) as he thinks we're at the end of an era of creating awareness, pilots, proof of concepts etc in the digital transformation of health(care). More on that on, his Linkedin Page has over 750.000 followers. He is Faculty Global Health(care) & Medecine since 2011 at Singularity University's Exponential Medicine in the US and in the Netherlands.
