Envisioning the Digital Hospital
The word “digital” is frequently used in a healthcare context when talking about electronic medical records, patient monitoring and similar categories where interactions with technology are very visible. But digital technology is truly changing the patient experience in every part of the hospital, as well as pre-admission and post-visit. Software and hardware solutions are delivering improved care with reduced errors by facilitating communication, scheduling patients and equipment, analyzing patient data, delivering post-operative reminders, improving surgical techniques and much more. When care is delivered seamlessly and readmissions are reduced, everyone benefits.
CB Insights, a firm specializing in market intelligence, recently compiled a collection of over 80 leaders in the digital hospital space - in 15 different digital health categories - in this infographic:
