Patient engagement and AI shined bright at HIMSS19

There was a ton to unwrap from HIMSS19 in Orlando, Florida.

Helping High-Risk Patients Stay Healthier and at Home

At Cardinal Health, we support healthcare leaders as they implement best practices to transform patient care. A particular focus for many of them, as a result of a rapidly aging population and ever-increasing healthcare costs, is the prevention of avoidable hospital readmissions for high-risk patients.
