Historic shifts are creating a perfect storm that is driving transformation in the healthcare industry as it navigates technological, regulatory, legislative and cultural changes. From critical resource shortages, stringent regulations, increased demand for healthcare services and changing demographics, the crisis in healthcare spending continues. Stakeholders, including governments, payers, providers, employers and patients, expect better quality, value and outcomes. Data generated by healthcare organizations continues to increase, with the growth of medical images and electronic medical records, as well as the proliferation of personal health devices.
