IBM would soon go on to make Watson the centerpiece of its AI strategy. And a big part of this was to focus on healthcare.

Microsoft Is Rapidly Expanding Its Presence In Healthcare

How The Pandemic Flipped The Default In Healthcare

How The Pandemic Flipped The Default In Healthcare

The coronavirus pandemic has upended our lives in so many ways. And while it’s not easy to find a bright side, one silver lining of the pandemic has to be the prevailing switch to a “digital first” mentality in healthcare.
