How to Successfully Deploy Digital Technologies in a DSO Clinic: Examples from Digital Impression Projects

There is a huge difference between a private clinic buying digital equipment and a digital rollout project across multiple sites in a DSO. How do you put together a realistic business case and what is needed to maximise the benefits from your investments? A major critical success factor is managing organisational change by effective internal communication, by setting up cross-functional and cross-enterprise project teams, and finally yet importantly, by creating a culture favoring change and progress. What are further learnings from pioneers in Europe and the US?
