Gen Y and Technology - Delivering NextGen Healthcare 

Written By: Tiffany Hudson

In the words of Morley Safer from the American news program 60 Minutes, “Stand back all bosses, a new breed of American worker is about to attack everything you hold sacred.” What a nice way to put it Mr. Safer, but to be honest, it sounds a little biased.

Why has there been controversy between Generation Y and the current workforce? It may be due to our abnormal perspectives or the fact that we appreciate when others want our input -- whatever it is, the media has enjoyed writing about our “non-traditional” ways of working. The truth is other generations are now embracing some of our methods: such as communicating through social media and “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) because of its convenience and efficiency.

While we may be viewed as being uncaring to what the current workforce offers, considering that we represent some of the earliest adopters of new technology, we believe there is always “a next best thing”. Social media has made our voices heard because we have had the luxury of broadcasting ourselves and being heard by others, which may be a factor as to why we are confident and have outspoken tendencies. In short, when we are happy and comfortable with how we do our job, we will produce a greater work output. This proves, unlike the generations before us, it isn’t necessarily a high salary we hope to achieve, but rather a greater respect from our colleagues and a freedom of choice to collaborate through the devices we see fit.

In the world of healthcare - millenials represent the next generation of workers.  We will hope to change the way we work - build efficiencies where there are none and ensure the patient experience is like no other.
