You ain’t heard nothin’ yet – Al Jolson’s immortal words from 1927’s The Jazz Singer may now have a whole new meaning as we enter the era of voice-enablement in healthcare. I have shared some of the most recent developments in secure voice-enabled communication between caregivers and patients in my latest blog in CIO online, and where we may be headed in the future.

One of the biggest challenges in digital transformation is aligning stakeholder groups across the enterprise. Our latest white paper examines best practices in stakeholder alignment by Chief Digital Officers in healthcare enterprises.

My favorite read this past week was a piece in HBR that discusses the results of a comprehensive study of over 250 platforms and highlights the most common reasons why platforms fail. The findings are particularly relevant for health cloud platforms launched by big tech firms.

In case you missed our monthly WITCH Monitor on global IT consulting firms for May, you can find it here.
