Date:7/18/2012

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A major problem in the provision of health care is how to improve the quality of care without increasing costs.  With advances in health information technology, there is an opportunity to leverage it to improve the provision of care and enhance the patient experience and outcome. 

"This is an unprecedented time for transition in the health care ecosystem through the use of technology," said Dr. Peter Tippett, chief medical officer and vice president of Verizon Connected Healthcare.  "Advances in telemedicine, wireless networks, virtual care solutions, information exchanges and cloud computing are empowering health care providers to improve their business operations while giving them more time to provide quality care."

Verizon believes the following ten areas offer the most promise to enhance patient care and reduce cost through the strategic use of technology:

  1.

  2. mHealth Takes Flexibility to the Next Level in Caring for Patients -- The rise in mobile health applications for smart phones has fostered more than 10,000 health applications in the iTunes store alone. According to
