In the face of expanding demand for services, today’s healthcare organizations are embracing digital transformation to accelerate patient health, business, and financial goals.
One thing is clear: Patients want greater personalization in their care. They are looking for the same easy, remote, and intuitive access to healthcare that they get from their shopping and banking experiences. This “consumerization” of healthcare is driving hospitals, clinics, and physician practices to find ways to use technology to build processes and procedures around patient needs rather than traditional healthcare delivery methods.
But which technologies should healthcare leaders invest in first? This guide for healthcare executives examines three emerging technologies—5G, Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and artificial intelligence (AI)—and how each can improve patient outcomes while driving business innovation that includes running more efficient operations. This overview also identifies potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.
