As we head into 2020, it's amazing to reflect on how much technology has affected healthcare and life sciences in the last decade alone. Ten years ago I never would have imagined Facetiming a doctor on my phone for a minor illness and having it cost less than going to a physical doctor's office.
The new year is ripe with opportunities for healthcare and life sciences organizations, including: improving patient and member outcomes, reducing readmissions, and encouraging consumers to own their healthcare journeys, from in-person appointments to calling into a customer service center to staying in touch through a mobile device.
Here are some of the top healthcare and life sciences tech trends we see leading the way into the next decade.
2020 will be an exciting year for the Appian healthcare and life sciences team. We will be participating in several global events, including SCOPE Summit, HIMSS Global Health Conference and Exhibition, Appian World, DIA Europe, DIA Global Annual Meeting, and HLTH.
If you're attending, we'd love to sit down with you to explore solutions to your challenges. And if you're not able to make it to any of these events, send me an email. We'll set up a time to talk about your organization's goals and how Appian can help you achieve them.
