What’s New at DIG
Health systems can longer afford to be ‘directionally’ right regarding digital transformation investments that remain mission critical to getting back on course. Digital pilots or initiatives can no longer run in perpetuity and instead must be rigorously instrumented. Value must now be realized and measured and must cross enterprise boundaries for health system adoption.

“Ensuring the future of today’s health system requires more than organizational alignment. Systems must leverage the expertise of partners to truly serve their community’s whole health needs. They must invest in the power of digital to connect those relationships both on the front and back end for systems and consumers alike. Fueling healthier communities is not a “one-person job.” Health systems must lean into that reality—designing and steering a connected ecosystem that accelerates and streamlines a person’s ability to take charge of their health.”
