The staggering cost of healthcare in America is well known. Technology holds promise to dynamically reduce the problem, but it requires healthcare organizations to adopt a different approach and mindset.

“A recent study found that 47 percent of patients and 42 percent of doctors surveyed believed that health care did not generally provide compassionate care,” Abner Mason states in an article he wrote for the Renewal Project, an offshoot of The Atlantic.

In this way, patients can become active drivers of their own health and doctors can better care for underserved and at-risk patients. By using technology to increase compassion in healthcare, ConsejoSano helps provide care for everybody, no matter their culture, language or where they live. The future of healthcare must include everyone. Regardless of who they are.
