How can technology eliminate distance barriers in health care?

Innovation Conference

Technology is making it easier than ever to understand our health and access quality care. This progress is especially beneficial for patients that previously had limited access to health care providers based on geography. 

Now, technology is eliminating distance barriers to better serve communities locally and in the developing world.
