Compassion in a technological world: Advancing AMS’s strategic aims
Over the next decade technology will continue to change healthcare in ways that we can only begin to imagine. What it means to care for patients is being transformed, along with expectations about how, where, and from whom people access the services that they need. As the pace of change accelerates, the opportunities will be tremendous but the journey ahead will be complex — no part of the healthcare sector will be left untouched.
Amidst these changes, AMS considered its role and reaffirmed its commitment to the learning and practice of compassionate care. We’ll champion the transformative impact of technology on the ‘human side’ of healthcare.
When AMS wrote its 2018-21 Strategic Aims, it took the first step toward this goal. It narrowed its strategic focus squarely on compassion in a technological world with three interrelated directions:
- Promoting the education and practice of compassionate care;
- Fostering new models of compassionate care delivery;
- Facilitating the leadership needed to realize the promise of technology while safeguarding humanistic care in fast-evolving sectors.
This document considers some of the key questions that will shape AMS’ role as a catalyst for innovation. It provides an overview of some of the most transformative technologies on the horizon and briefly explores the potential impacts and issues ahead. It lays out AMS’s 2019 roadmap for maximizing its influence on healthcare’s transformation.
