All the attention for digital transformation initiatives in healthcare seem to be focused on digital front doors, AI, and the emerging tech that transforms patient experiences. The technology enablers for creating these engaging experiences deserve mention too.

The debate around providing access to patient data took an interesting turn last week as it emerged that some 60 hospitals had voiced their formal support for Epic’s objections to the proposed HHS rulings.
