AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's healthcare consumers want to take responsibility for managing their own health. Yet, most feel they don't have the information or tools to do so. The healthcare industry presents a huge array of confusing choices, conflicting information, and non-transparent, incoherent data silos that make patient engagement and control impossible. Seventy-five percent of consumers consider their healthcare decisions to be the most important decisions they make, yet the process of managing healthcare services and information can be daunting.
