They will be able to leverage powerful analytical tools, including AI technologies, to improve decision making. Digital technologies will bring patients and care teams closer together. A cultural shift to a digital mindset, coupled with new technology, will enable development of a continuously improving learning health system.
Ultimately, digitalizing healthcare enables providers to achieve better outcomes at lower costs. To make this possible four steps are critical:
