Healthcare is transforming at an unprecedented pace. This goes far beyond allowing patients to review digital PHI records and communicate with their physicians electronically. It is about enabling technologies that include virtual care, cloud services, machine learning, predictive analytics while safeguarding cloud-based PHI. What most organizations do not realize is that these innovations in technology can provide performance, cost savings, agility, and most importantly compliance benefits.
