BrightSpring Chief Medical Officer Dr. Arif Nazir was featured in McKnight’s Long Term Care News article Bake In Success With Advanced Clinicians in Place: BrightSpring Health’s Arif Nazir, MD.” In the article, Dr. Nazir discusses the adoption of smart technologies at long-term care facilities and coordinating with key clinicians to ensure quality.
“If you bring premature technology like remote patient monitoring, they actually add a significant burden for the staff,” Nazir, MD, told McKnight’s Long-Term Care News Thursday. “I’m not saying we shouldn’t invest in it. It’s just not where it needs to be yet. … Right now, the data points create a lot of noise and they can create a lot of extra work.”
“We can teach and learn everything else, but if you’re not going to be compassionate about the work you do, if these patients are just numbers for you, they’re just revenue, this building is just a chore for you … that’s the kind of person who will never be a successful physician leader or will never be able to drive outcomes.”
