The research program examined how healthcare providers can use new solutions to build bridges for the betterment of their patient populations.
“With the healthcare industry’s increasing focus on patient-centric care, healthcare organizations must keep up with increasing demands to provide higher-quality healthcare that caters specifically to patient needs,” said Dave Bennett, pCare CEO. “The future of patient care lies with healthcare systems adopting technology to streamline the customer experience, close patient experience gaps, and better serve patients while improving staff satisfaction and internal operations.”
Technology has always played a role in patient care, but its impact has grown exponentially in recent years. Key findings in the study indicate that:
• Sixty-five percent of respondents shared that patients’ demands for technology-enabled healthcare experiences have increased.
