TechTalks | Digital Transformation in Healthcare: Opportunities and Trends


Published on

Of all the industries out there, healthcare has perhaps the most to gain from digital transformation. Technology can decrease wait times, reduce medical errors and increase collaboration across providers — all of which helps people find their way to better health and healthcare businesses achieve a better bottom line.

The problem is, healthcare has struggled more than pretty much any other industry out there to keep up with the times. Why is that? How do we buck the trend and begin to embrace the tremendous opportunity of digital transformation in healthcare? And who out there is already doing it really, really well?

RMCSoft and Advent Coworking brought together a panel of experts to dig into all of that at their TechTalks event on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

This fascinating conversation highlighted not only the challenges facing health care in the digital age, but also ideas and vision for a path forward.
