Jan Kimpen, Philips Chief Medical Officer, said, "Over the past year, it’s clear and understandable that most healthcare leaders have been focused squarely on patient care. But even as they navigate these challenges, many express an appreciation for, and anticipated adoption of, value-based care. Healthcare leaders have seen firsthand the part that digital health technology has played in recent months, helping to ensure the continued delivery of care in incredibly difficult circumstances. As a result, many are reassessing their facility’s technological capabilities as they consider what’s next. Smart collaborations and meaningful partnerships will be critical to achieve digital transformation."
