Connected Health: What is it?
Historically, healthcare has been episodic in nature, with clinicians making decisions without seeing a comprehensive picture of the patient. Connected Health seeks to improve traditional healthcare pathways by putting the patient at the center of the healthcare system, and aggregating and linking information from many different sources to enable more informed care decisions. Connected Health also seeks to address the needs of Baby Boomers and Millennials, both of whom have specific needs and ways of being taken care of in our healthcare delivery system.
