To say we are witnessing a revolution in healthcare today is an understatement. Between telehealth, 5G expansion, and business intelligence analysis — the pace of change led by the pandemic has been rapid and won’t slow down anytime soon.
Longtime Cisco customer CVS Health has been on the road to digital transformation long before any of us heard of COVID-19 and this week I’m thrilled that MinuteClinic, the inner medical clinic Selected CVS Pharmacy locations will be honored for some of this work at the prestigious ANCC National Awards Ceremony, a celebration of nurses who enhance the quality of patient care. MinuteClinic named 2020 ANCC Pathway® Award winner for changing the game for patients and clinicians by enabling a new Webex-powered virtual collaboration tool for its providers .
Based on Cisco Webex, this enables clinicians, providers, and patients to engage in real-time, high-quality video consultations in a HIPAA-compliant manner. Technology brings a richer contextual experience to MinuteClinic visits by providing seamless communication (video, audio, text, and image exchange) to help providers easily connect with other healthcare professionals and deliver high-quality, collaborative clinical care in real time to patients.
On behalf of Cisco, congratulations to MinuteClinic on winning this prestigious award — and more importantly, for making a difference in the communities you serve. High-impact change doesn’t always come from a large, multi-year transformation project. Working hard to get and stay in the digital transformation journey continuously brings agility, where small changes can have large and wide-ranging impact.
