Although the term is still being defined, it points to a methodology that leverages apps, wearables and other digital features to enhance patient outcomes at a lower price point. Ultimately, this is another way technology companies are leading the charge forward into the healthcare revolution.
So what does this revolution have in store for us? Health IT executives are weighing in and have outlined their timeline of what to expect over the next 20 years as it pertains to artificial intelligence – not to be confused with bots which are centered around one specific aspect of the space.
