The pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation of healthcare by as much as 10 years in a matter of a few months. Wireless telemedicine, point-of-care transactions, AI-enabled disease management, home diagnostics, the virtual hospital, e-enabled customer choice, e-enabled assisted living, e-communities of practice, just-in-time training, and procurement service providers are just a few of the many technology-enabled areas that are being used to accelerate a positive transformation in healthcare.

AI, advanced robotics, and other emerging technology will never replace doctors and nurses, but they will provide them with more data-driven insights and actions that elevate effectiveness and enable all levels of healthcare staff to achieve their desired outcomes faster.

Understanding the future facts that are shaping the post-pandemic future of healthcare, as well as the amazing new opportunities they represent, will empower attendees to determine a clear course of action.
