Event Overview

Digital Transformation Trends Driving Connected, Secure and Futuristic Patient-Centric Care

As we press on into the future, it’s critical to remain mindful of the trends driving healthcare technology in 2022. Although legacy software and infrastructure are essential to the success of modern hospitals and care centers, we must consider how those systems can integrate with newer technologies or how they may eventually be replaced with more reliable systems. The focus should be on improving performance, productivity, efficiency, and security without sacrificing reliability or accessibility.

If you’re ready to explore the tech innovations driving the healthcare industry towards digital transformation this year, join us at the next National Insights – Fall Edition as we gather to share, learn and collaborate more on practical approaches and solutions that can help co-create a connected yet secure patient-centric healthcare care.
