As Healthcare Industry Transforms Overnight, Tech Community Must Act

1 min. read

Today everyone is in Agile mode, but no one more so than the overburdened healthcare industry.

We have seen images of doctors and nurses on the front lines, but there are heroic efforts happening behind the scenes too as hospitals and health systems innovate at warp speed to solve new logistical and data challenges.
