The article, “How Healthcare Organizations Can Break Down Barriers to Care” by Zafar Chaudry looks closer at how technology and healthcare can closer align for better patient care.  He states,

“These efforts impact every aspect of healthcare, especially the patient. Digital initiatives have made it possible for healthcare providers and patients to connect while maintaining social distancing, just as similar transformation efforts have enabled work from home for many industries and remote schooling for students.

Strengthening these connections between technology and healthcare will be a key trend as the future of healthcare continues to serve patients in ways never thought before.  Case Managers will no doubt also benefit from these abilities to better communicate with patients they could not monitor as close before due to logistics.
