The fact that we now have access to excellent connected digital devices, whether they be smartphones, PCs, tablets or other devices, has revolutionized healthcare, allowing us to receive treatment wherever we are.
Therefore healthcare providers are turning to experts such as Napier Healthcare to help them create environments in which patients feel comfortable and secure using their digital technology to access healthcare services. For instance Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems make it easier for patients to know about their personal health history and transfer that from one provider to another.
As Karthik Tirupathi, CEO of Napier Healthcare points out in this interview with IBM VP of Ecosystem Development Mark Hanny, this 'death of distance' allows for the delivery of more preventative service that patients can undertake without having to travel to a doctor's office. Using IBM’s technology helps Napier Healthcare provide real insights into the patient data they collect.
