Five Things You Need to Know About Agile Health
Healthcare is undergoing a transformational shift, moving away from episodic treatment and toward long-term health and well being. Patients are making better informed decisions about their health, which, coupled with advances in medicine, have led to ever higher expectations for the delivery of care.

Agile health means enhancing decision making through access to better information, improving coordination across the healthcare ecosystem, and supporting the move to new models of care.
