Our five-year journey has given us the opportunity to work with many talented individuals and organizations to accomplish a common goal: Determine how technology can be used to improve the health of patients and to benefit society. As we look forward to the next five years, I wanted to share five observations that we believe will continue to drive us toward a value-based and personalized health care model:
As I look to the future, I am excited and optimistic about what lies ahead. We are truly at the beginning of the digital and data driven transformation of health care.
