As healthcare demands, reforms, and accessibility increase, healthcare organizations are faced with the challenge to provide higher quality care at lower costs. This need was enhanced with the establishment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which mandated that access to healthcare must be expanded as far as possible. Connected healthcare is a term being heard more and more often, but before we dive into the future of healthcare, it would be wise to take a look at how we got here. With the devastating effects of the pandemic, caregivers are now looking toward adopting connected home health technologies like never before. Smart and connected health is now proven to be one of the most effective strategies toward providing better care at reduced prices.
