- A physician in Philadelphia clicks on his iPad and has immediate access to CT scans from the ER.
- In a remote village outside of Nairobi, a healthcare worker walking to a make-shift clinic makes sure to bring her mobile phone so that patient vital signs can be immediately texted back to the hospital.
- A mother in Chicago goes to the drugstore and uses her iPhone in the aisle to find coupons for children’s pain medicine.
Each day around the world, scenes like these are occurring with increasing frequency as the combined impact of smartphones, tablets, and social networks revolutionize the ways by which patients are diagnosed, monitored, and treated. The common threads that link these stories – Anywhere Diagnosis, Anywhere Data, and Anywhere Delivery – are powerful and far-reaching, and together form the foundation for Anywhere Health.
