Heath insurance marketplace changes have created new and innovative opportunities to connect the ever-growing health care ecosystem. Health care organizations need to modernize, or they will be left with antiquated processes such as paper and fax. The inability to shift to automation and digital capabilities limits access to data and end-to-end workflows.
