Health needs are infinite, but resources are finite. Health organizations are frustrated with technology solutions that haven’t delivered on their promise to improve care, facilitate research, and rein in costs. Transforming healthcare requires more than digitizing medical records. We need “systems of insight” that help translate data into action, and “systems of engagement” that enable new ways to treat patients more quickly and more long-term. Microsoft platforms and services lay the trusted foundation for such solutions, so health providers and payors, public health or social services agencies, and pharmaceutical companies can improve patient and employee experiences, empower researchers, and enhance products and services in the face of increasing cost pressures.
