Sharing those special memories used to be the providence of a film camera, a visit to a D & P outlet and many hours if not days of waiting, only to find the photos were out of focus and too dark! The advent of digital photo solutions eliminated most of those steps but highlighted how important it was to have equipment and its related software working together. Today we don’t even think about linking up camera, computer and internet and all the related software that is needed – it just works. So is it so unreasonable to expect the same from our Healthcare systems and services?
