The healthcare landscape is changing. External forces, such as the pandemic, are behind some of that change, but so are digital health leaders pushing for improved care delivery, equity and patient outcomes.
Change in digital health comes in different forms. Driven by patient requests for on-demand access to care, clinician shortages and the growing collection of patient data, developments around digital-first strategies, virtual care, clinician workflow efficiencies and interoperability are continuing to evolve in response.
Clinicians and patients have become much more reliant on digital health solutions, and now the focus has turned to how to best manage and integrate these tools while maintaining a secure environment. The successful implementation of these technologies and strategies depends on cross-team conversations and holistic approaches to clinician workflows.
HealthTech is excited to highlight the leadership and hard work of 30 healthcare IT influencers driving innovation and change in the digital health space. These leaders offer valuable insights into successful technology implementations.
