Network technology is changing the nature of healthcare—slowly.
- Monitoring patients’ health more proactively with networked devices, ranging from wirelessly networked medicine bottle lids to worn or embedded sensors that report back on vital signs;
- Coordinating care with the help of analytic tools in the cloud and a wealth of individual and collective patient data; and
- Connecting physicians directly with patients over PCs or mobile devices for between-appointment follow-ups.
