Digital human resource management

Dear Sir or Madam,

Is healthcare threatened by a staff exodus? The employees there had to bear one of the biggest burdens in the corona pandemic during the past months. But jobs in healthcare did not have the best image before the pandemic already: too much work and responsibility for relatively small pay. Employers in healthcare should prepare better for staff shortages by digitizing their human resource management. Read more in our Topic of the Month.

Does medicine get digital when we scan in diagnostic findings and digitize them in the process?
