Detailed scheduling is liberating. Assigning specific tasks to specific time blocks ensures that I get my jobs done at the right time. Exercise is an effective stress reducer in my life. I feel it pumps feel good endorphins through my body.
Going forward, what are the changes in market behavior that you anticipate, and what are the opportunities that you foresee?
Organizations must raise the bar for digital excellence, anticipate customers’needs, and meet increased expectations for a safe environment to succeed ahead. All these have strong implications for the healthcare revenue cycle. Major market shifts are likely to happen in the healthcare sector including a massive wave of investment, innovation, and new entrants from the technology, telecom, and consumer industries.

In midst of all these market behaviors, we can surely see the increased expansion of tele pharmacy adoption, increasing scope for remote patient monitoring and tele health, and acceptance of new technology.
