1. Data interoperability (mostly patient data records moving from system to system as a patient moves from provider to provider). This creates a need for cloud fabric to support many specialized applications, orchestration of repeated tasks like patient onboarding, and a focus on the patients’ digital experience.
2. Managing gig workers needs better resource management capabilities as well as better ways to measure productivity for remote specialists, like radiologists. Remote work is just the tip of the iceberg. Healthcare has a shortage of healthcare talent. As a result, specialists are freelancing across multiple provider systems, requiring an application layer to solve this gig economy challenge.
3. Connected medical devices continue to grow. We saw lots of AI-enabled devices, from geriatric care safety products to cancer treatment products. Everything had AI and was connected.
