“Cross-over between departments within hospitals to Improve quality of care”
A way to improve quality of care within hospitals is to encourage and facilitate the exchange of personnel between departments.
In a step by step procedure a hospital can motivate it’s personnel to change department and work for – say a year – in another line of work.
Using (internal) social media may help to implement this process.
This way the hospital stimulates a cross-over of knowledge and skills and boosts the quality of care within the hospital on the whole.
In addition it opens the way between different cultures, promotes understanding and a sense of community.
And as a side effect it has the potential to improve employee satisfaction on the whole!
