10 Tips for Organizing Your Home Office

Tech Tools Are Driving Changes in Healthcare Delivery

Health Leaders Media
Each and every one of us has the power to change the world. Ideas are the instrument to do so—but not if they stay buried deep down inside us. To spread our ideas, we have to know how to broadcast them in the right way, so audiences will accept and adopt them, and above all, share them with others.

In the course of our everyday lives, we often find ourselves talking about our plans—to get approval, to secure funding, to land a new client, or to close a sale. Whenever we’re trying to influence someone and obtain a favorable response to our ideas, we’re taking advantage of our ability to communicate to change the world around us.

A fundraising campaign for a startup idea, a presentation to announce the launch of a new product, an internal company meeting to get the CEO’s approval on a cross-functional project, a sales pitch to clients…these are just a few examples of where the power of communication starts to shine. 
A disorganized office makes you less productive and can contribute to stress. Even if you don't consider yourself a "neat freak," getting organized can really pay off. These 10 tips can help you organize your home office.

Does your home office look like a picture of beauty—maybe something that belongs on a beautiful Pinterest board or are you quite the opposite? Maybe your office looks like it was outside during a hurricane. If you’re an example of the latter, keep reading, we can help.

Why Bother?

Because science says you should. Research shows that organized people get more done and have less stress. According to the National Association of Professional Organizers, the biggest problem for most office workers are those important papers that seem to walk off. The study also found that the average person wastes 4.3 hours every week searching for papers. That’s a lot of wasted hours.
problem, let’s solve that.
Innovation is everywhere these days and HealthLeaders recently honed in on five tech tools that could make a difference in the way hospitals deliver care. For further insight, we turned to a digital expert to weigh in on why these devices and apps matter, as well as the trends driving these developments.

Brian Kalis, managing director of digital health and innovation for Accenture, a global management consulting and professional services firm in Minneapolis-St. Paul, reviewed background materials and websites for HeathLeaders' January/February cover story, "5 Tech Tools That Could Change the Way Your Hospital Delivers Care." Kalis is a recognized digital health expert with significant experience combining business strategy and digital innovation.

"We're increasingly seeing technology becoming a key part of the care team, whether that's at home, on the go, or in the inpatient setting," says Kalis.
