Our own Rob Cohen provided his thoughts: “We have BIG problems facing us in healthcare—the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid epidemic, mental health crisis, staggering impact of chronic conditions and health equity—and we have to leverage every tool in our toolbox, including technology, to overcome our obstacles. Data, analytics, collaboration, innovation and medical science are imperative to helping us battle these mounting problems. Technology serves as a connector, breaking down silos to improve care coordination and positively impact outcomes across patients’ physical and behavioral needs. We must focus on addressing these challenges and blazing new trails through our innovative solutions.”
