"You can talk about cost reduction through efficiency, because you're not going to compromise care and because the penalty for compromising care is going to be greater than the penalty for inefficiency." - Omar Ishrak 


What’s Old is New Again – Gillian Kernaghan, President and Chief Executive Officer, St. Joseph’s Health Care London
The future of healthcare will increasingly be driven by advancements in technology. Care enabled by technology will allow patients to visit healthcare providers from their own home or office or from a geographic distance. Patients will be able to manage their own health and health information through portals and mobile devices.
