Healthcare Moves into the 21st Century

Innovation is defined as a new idea, more effective device or process. Healthcare is widely considered one of the least innovative business sectors by the tech industry and yet, according to a recent survey by Ketchum, consumers value innovation in healthcare above innovation in all other industries. Considering that many doctors still fax prescriptions to pharmacies to be filled, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this group is slow to adopt technological advances. Things are changing though.
