Revolutionizing Healthcare Through Digital Transformation

The healthcare ecosystem has had multiple setbacks since 2020, from the initial spread of COVID-19 to the recent emergence of highly contagious variants. Adapting to the new way of work, by itself, was a concern that every industry had to deal with. But the healthcare industry faced additional pressing concerns like planning the logistics for COVID-19 testing and vaccination. Because of these disruptions, many of the healthcare companies that did not have a digital-first ecosystem in place were compelled to adapt to a new era.

Transforming healthcare

At a recent digital roundtable hosted by Equinix and organized by Jicara Media, leaders from hospitals and pharmaceutical organizations expressed how they have adapted to the pandemic era disruptions and how they have reshaped the landscape with a digital ecosystem. Participants shared where the healthcare industry is at in terms of the digital supply chain, infrastructure requirements, as well as key technology challenges that are impeding progress. We also looked at some of the silver linings that appear to be slowly revealing themselves as the industry adapted to the challenges.
