Technology has become the backbone of many sectors. Healthcare industry is one of the beneficiaries of advanced technology. Many hospital devices have been developed and are making management of various complex diseases very easy. On top of that, we are moving from manual operations to digital systems that improve efficiency in healthcare facilities. Drew Madden is one of the leaders who is working day and night to ensure the healthcare sector grows. He is a healthcare IT professional with vast experience in project management and consulting operations.
Currently, Drew is working at Evergreen Consulting Partner as a managing partner. Evergreen Consulting Partners is a leader in providing healthcare IT expertise.

He helped the firm grow from a startup company to a leading firm specializing in healthcare IT consulting.

It is evident that technology is changing fast. Drew Madden is confident that the healthcare sector can take advantage of the changes to benefit patients, entrepreneurs, and other healthcare players. From where we stand, the industry has technology that can be improved to make operations better. Currently, many doctors use a manual process to get patients’ diagnostic data. At times, the data can be lacking, and it becomes difficult for the doctors to get actionable recommendations. There is room to come up with technologies that can generate health reports to assist doctors.
When it comes to scheduling and communication platforms, many healthcare facilities use a paper-based system which is prone to mistakes. It is therefore essential to adopt technologies that will have a scheduling and communication platforms that are better than paperwork system. Healthcare facilities have tracking systems that are not effective. They should get real-time tracking systems that will increase department cooperation and reduce delays.
