Your Healthcare Intranet goal should be to serve employees, make their day-to-day work activities easier, and be the go-to resource they cannot live without. The first step in doing this is to engage employees in the implementation of the intranet so they feel part of its growth and feel a sense of ownership through participation.
Intranet Connections has worked with over 160 healthcare organizations and with their feedback we have created several applications that are designed to make your job easier. The following Healthcare Intranet applications are a few of the templates you can use to promote employee participation. Tie this into your company culture and community building and you have the fundamentals for a successful Healthercare Intranet.
