Healthcare providers are currently under an enormous amount of pressure coming from all directions. They face growing numbers of patients with chronic diseases, waves of critically ill patients in ICU beds, and increasing requirements for easier access to services, including new telehealth offerings, to name just a few challenges.
All the while, the industry is evolving toward a delivery model that requires providers to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and meet new demands for transparent pricing. And to make hard problems even harder, healthcare data continues to flood providers, thanks in part to things like new wearable devices, remote monitors and genomics information.
