A major problem with the healthcare system today is fragmentation. From a lack of integration among systems to well-intentioned initiatives that misalign with other purposeful measures, fragmentation is hurting healthcare. From the local to federal level, innovative programs are not scaled up or out successfully, and the industry misses out on what could bring value to the market. Inefficient resource allocation has led to waste and an annual spend approaching nearly $10K per person in the US alone. Doesn’t sound like an issue to you?

This issue of fragmentation in healthcare is one of many, and it’s one that unified communications (UC) can feature prominently in fixing.
