Healthcare CIOs Need to Hone Their Focus to Accelerate Innovation in the Post-pandemic Environment
In both policy and technology, many of the changes that were supposed to be short-term emergency measures, implemented only for the pandemic, have surprisingly endured into the post-pandemic era. With newfound courage, this has opened up previously unseen opportunities for large-scale innovation using the power of technology.
It’s not just one technology that will bring us the accelerated transformation—the true power will come from the convergence of things like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain. However, in order for us to start the convergence and create real value for the business, CIOs have to make sure the foundation of the data is there.
Right now, in 2021, I see that we are still in the middle of setting the foundation for the next phase, working towards our highly technology-enabled provisioning of care vision.
