and health management services via the following link:

Prepare a brief (8-10 slides) PowerPoint presentation in which you do the

1.) Identify at least two technology innovations to connect patients, providers, and
insurers across the care continuum.

2.) Describe how the technologies work to provide patients and providers with data
necessary for health care decision making.

3.)Discuss how the real-time data encourages outcome-focused planning.

4.) Predict what impact the technology will have on future health care delivery.
Provide rationale and examples.
