Despite the massive investment in healthcare in the U.S., costs continue to rise and the health of the population is declining. We’re dealing with more chronic conditions and more people with multiple conditions. Our industry is trying to solve this with wave after wave of technology – Analytics, Internet of Things, Mobile Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Robotic Automation, Fitbits and health trackers, home monitors, etc. Has it made a difference?
