The social nature of today's constantly connected patients and consumers means life sciences organizations must provide on-demand access to information and support. While scientific advancements have led to miraculous treatments, technological advancements have the potential to facilitate unprecedented innovation. This new wave of innovation is dependent on capturing environmental determinants of health and the delivery of real-time care and collaboration.
