Pave the Way for Digital Transformation in Health Care

Health care systems are complex and multifaceted. The global pandemic expedited many digital initiatives to better everyday life, but it also left many health systems in chaos and painfully aware of their digital shortcomings. As a result, the health care sector is ripe for digital disruption and there has been a drastic increase in the application scope of digital solutions in clinical decision support, telehealth, health care IT systems and more.
