Advancing patient care through IT services
Historically, health systems have modernized their IT strategies in one of two ways. They either use in-house expertise or work with a vendor partner to manage a slice of operations through consulting or professional services.
Digital transformation is about enablement
It’s not about the latest or shiniest technology. It’s about how we can enable an organization to achieve its objectives through digital solutions. It’s about delivering better patient outcomes via specific IT areas: cloud, security and applications.
