A fast-aging population, the rise of chronic diseases and a shortage of healthcare workers present serious challenges to the healthcare sector today. NCS’ vision for the Future of Healthcare seeks to address these issues through the use of technology to deliver "frictionless" patient care.
For example, robotics can help improve productivity by dispensing medication and providing concierge services for patients. Edge analytics and artificial intelligence can enhance the speed and quality of clinical decisions and provide valuable insights into the efficacy of treatments in order to improve outcomes. Patients themselves will be actively engaged in monitoring their own health through wearables and health monitoring apps.
We work with healthcare providers to embed these technologies into the healthcare workflow in order to deliver patient-centric care and provide support for healthy aging across the entire care continuum.
