A new article in HealthcareITNews highlights the hospitals of the future and their need to become more virtual.  I love the five key design elements for hospitals of the future — without walls:

  1. The ability to design a digital profile of each individual  –  i.e. healthcare CRM
  2. The ability to see and engage virtually via high-definition video, anytime, anywhere and on any device
  3. The ability to create centers of collaboration excellence both inside and outside of our communities
  4. The ability to access massive amounts of data without putting it in one container
  5. The ability to leverage social media as a care coordination platform, not merely a collaboration platform 

I, like Ash Shehata, have envisioned this and am so happy to see I’m not alone.
