Digital Healthcare Trends:

Paper health records lead to inefficiencies and big mistakes

There used to be a day you would go to the doctor when you were sick. The doctor would see you, examine and diagnose you, write out a prescription, hand it to you and send you on your way.

While the rumors associated with the iPhone 8 sound incredible, It’s hard to argue with the growing belief that Samsung, with the Galaxy S8, has finally leapfrogged Apple— offering the best mobile phone on the market. In fact, after evaluating the Samsung Galaxy S8, Zach Epstein from BGR wrote that while he’s waiting for the iPhone 8 to be released, “Using my iPhone for the next 6 months is really going to suck.” (Click here for the full article).

Why do people stay with the iPhone instead of upgrading to a superior phone?
