The U.S. healthcare market continues to be under an unprecedented amount of change. A confluence of rising costs, high-risk patient populations and regulatory changes make the market ripe for opportunity. Healthcare transformation is an ever evolving ecosystem. Traditionally change has occurred at the clinical level. Clinical procedures, drug discovery and care delivery have been foremost to clinicians. The intersection of clinical and technology is accelerating the current wave of changes. An evolution of Managed Care is occurring now. Healthcare vendors need to understand that it’s not just adding technology or putting in lean process changes, long-term success is putting adaptable services and technology in place. Regardless of technology clinical care will be the first priority. Solutions and services will always be put in place to support this care.
