Team related tasks
Some recommend superusers.
If possible, there should be superusers representing all types of healthcare professionals in the team. They should also represent, day, evening and night shifts. The profile should never be the technology enthusiast – but rather a person who is:
a) in the middle group with respect to digital readiness,
b) has strong professional competences,
c) has good relations to collegues and managers.”
Some recommend ambassadors- who could have tasks such as enhancing the knowledge about the technology in the teams, but also spread the news to other teams in the same health-care unit. Or visit other units/teams where the technology already is fully implemented.
