Celebrating MinuteClinic as it Transforms the Health of People and Communities
To say that we are witnessing a revolution in healthcare today is an understatement. Between telehealth, 5G expansions, and business intelligence analytics – the pace of change driven by the pandemic has been fast and won’t slow anytime soon.
Long-time Cisco customer CVS Health was on the path of digital transformation long before any of us heard about COVID-19, and this week I am delighted that MinuteClinic, the medical clinic within CVS pharmacy locations selected for some of that work in the most prestigious National ANCC Awards CeremonyIt is a celebration for nurses to advance the quality of patient care. MinuteClinic, the winner of the 2020 ANCC Pathway Award, has been chosen to change the game for patients and clinicians by activating a new virtual collaboration tool supported by Webex for its providers.
Based on Cisco WebexThis allows clinicians, service providers, and patients to participate in high-quality, real-time video consultations in a HIPAA-compliant manner. Technology provides a richer contextual experience for MinuteClinic visits by providing continuous communications (video, audio, text, and image exchange) to help providers easily communicate with other healthcare professionals and provide high-quality, collaborative, real-time clinical care to patients.
On behalf of the Cisco, congratulations to MinuteClinic on winning this prestigious award – and most importantly, for making such a difference in the communities they serve. High-impact change doesn’t always have to come from a massive, multi-year transformative project. Doing the hard work of getting and staying on an ongoing digital transformation journey leads to flexibility, where small changes can have a big, far-reaching impact.
