In our modern age, technology is no longer a luxury or a frill–it’s a necessity. When it comes to healthcare, technology is essential to the critical tasks of keeping patients happy, healthy and safe. This is top of mind for us this week as World Health Day takes place on April 7 to commemorate the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO). The theme of World Health Day this year is depression – a mental illness that affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries.

Amazing advancements in biomedical engineering, computer science and pharmacology have resulted in the ability to detect disease faster, treat more people and ultimately save more lives. The technology and innovation that supports the overall functionality of a healthcare institution is just as important as the technology that drives modern cures and antidotes– from efficient batteries to workflow solutions, these technologies work together to keep healthcare facilities running. Another critical area of healthcare innovation is providing interoperable care to patients – as hospitals and healthcare networks become more connected it is essential that patient records follow suit and populations can access healthcare records and information in a timely and efficient way.

In observance of World Health Day, we want to highlight a few of our healthcare customers that are using our secure access solutions to improve patient care and ultimately make the world a healthier place:
