How do you see technology transforming healthcare over the next 2-3 years?
Transformation on multiple fronts. Technologically through machine learning (AI), IoT items (smartphone apps, local devices that are “smart”, etc.), and replacing some of the past interfaces with human Drs/nurses with technology. Procedural by providing tailored systems that streamline and add efficiency to the healthcare ecosystem (like Altruista Health!). Diagnostically by leveraging new technologies and capabilities to improve diagnoses and responses
How will Altruista Health support this transformation?
We are already on all three of these paths and should continue to grow along them. Mobile is first entry into this with others to follow as requested by clients. GuidingCare and other modules continue to evolve to meet client needs.  A our client pool grows the breadth of our ideas of what to include grows too. This will keep us as a leader in this procedural space. Our rules help identify when a member needs to see a human.
