The future of technology in the health industry

To read my blog on the MYOB website click this link:  The future of technology in the Health Industry

The health industry is changing at a rapid pace, but healthcare providers aren’t keeping up.

When it comes to the back-office functions of healthcare providers, they find that their systems are disconnected and inefficient – which is strange because tech in the health industry is improving real outcomes.

This is an industry where an enormous opportunity is opening up thanks to technology such as the Internet of Things, e-health, m-health and interconnected practices.

All of these things offer medical professionals remote, real-time access to in-depth patient health data.

This allows for better monitoring, remote diagnosis, quicker response times and more.

To understand the opportunity in the healthcare space, you need to understand the trends emerging thanks to tech.

Then, you need to be in a position to take advantage of them.
