«The healthcare industry is in the middle of deep digital transformation across every aspect of the patient journey. Technology has always been important in healthcare, but COVID-19 has accelerated advancements, improving the way care is delivered. The pandemic also increased patient interest in being more involved in their healthcare decisions. And when patients are more involved, they are typically more satisfied with their experience and have better health outcomes. From remote patient monitoring technology that allows patients to track biometric data at home and report that information to their doctors to precision medicine that is tailoring healthcare to a patient’s specific genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors, technology is proving to improve the patient experience.»

«Advanced technologies have also made their way into the surgical suite. These “smart ORs” contain next-generation physical equipment connected by software integrations that communicate with each other around the procedure. The benefit of leveraging these technologies to improve every part of procedural processes is undeniable. As surgical and interventional suites become even more advanced, the adoption of new technologies will also accelerate. The result? A reduction in administrative burden will allow clinicians to focus on what’s most important: treating the patient and delivering the best outcomes.»
