Take Control of Your Health Data
Play • 44 min

Access to all of your health data - MRIs, screenings, and lab results - could be right at your fingertips. COVID-19 put healthcare tech companies into high gear to deliver health data to patients. The end result? Empowered patients, improved clinical trials, and greater control over healthcare decision making.
