Investing wisely in the healthcare IT ecosystem

Healthcare has typically been a laggard in adopting digital technologies, but we are catching up. We are starting to use the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and machine learning for patient care, quality improvement, and healthcare operations.

Executives in those industries have learned to manage their operations in real time, which is different from responding to conditions after they happen, as we have always done in healthcare. But we are making great progress.
