IoT and AI Can Unlock Real Value Beyond the Hype, and Here & #039;s How
Everyone who works in healthcare is currently sitting in the center of a turbulent convergence. The drive toward value-based care is demanding better outcomes for less cost, while consumer-driven care demands patient self-empowerment and a more collaborative relationship between patient and physician. In my latest book, The Big Unlock, I discuss how the Internet of Things (IoT) and a connected healthcare ecosystem serve as a beacon for stakeholders within the convergence to help them navigate their way to the goals of value-based care. But many still struggle to see value in this approach as the technologies involved ...
