The primary objective is to examine how HR strategies can contribute to workforce sustainability in healthcare, amidst the rapid digital transformation and the burgeoning influence of Fin Tech innovations.

The role of HR in fostering a culture of continuous learning and adaptability, essential for navigating the dynamic healthcare landscape, is also highlighted. Significant findings demonstrate that strategic HR interventions, particularly those leveraging digital and Fin Tech innovations, can significantly enhance workforce resilience and adaptability. These strategies are crucial in ensuring the healthcare sector’s ability to respond effectively to global health emergencies, such as pandemics, and to manage the ongoing staffing crises.
