Navigating Change: How to Embrace and Harness It
The healthcare industry is going through a period of rapid growth and change. Workforce shortages, AI implementations, innovative technologies, changes to workflows, and more are stirring up the waters.
Russ Branzell, President & CEO of CHIME, quizzes Mark Burgess, President of AGFA HealthCare, NA, on how he and his organization are adapting to this period of uncertainty. Mark shares over 25 years of insights on how to embrace change, achieve success, and ultimately get where you need to go.
“You can embrace change, or you can resist it. You need to have a model. It’s very important for people to understand their role during change. And it’s important for you to have the right mindset. You need to know where you’re starting from and where you’re trying to go. There will be deviations from the flight plan on the way, but you need to remain focused on the destination."
Listen now for more insightful tips from Mark on traversing the current healthcare IT’s ever-changing landscape, how to lead and develop people, and “how to start with the end in mind”.

Russ Branzell, CHIME’s President and CEO, welcomes Anthony Mazzarelli, MD, JD, MBE, Co-President and CEO, Cooper University Health Care, to CHIME’s newest Trailblazers podcast.

Together, they unpack “compassionomics”, the data behind this practice, and how it can truly revolutionize the healthcare industry as well as the world. They discuss the importance of connecting with others and being “other-focused” rather than self-focused. They agree that compassion is good medicine, not a “side dish” as it can be taught in medical school.
