“Our vision of the future places people at the centre of their care – supported by leading technologies. By improving efficiencies and connectivity, we will transform how people experience healthcare and enable our support team to spend more time providing human support to clients,” he said in a company blog post.
“I can see the big technology players making their contribution, and we can also see a large number of technology start-ups coming to the market within the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), integration and industry standards, mobile devices that can monitor health and fitness, as well as apps that support behaviour and access.
