To cure cancer, reduce costs, and engage patients, health systems are taking new approaches to care delivery and patient engagement, demanding new types of data and rapid access toit--on any device, anytime.

Cloud-based applications like Salesforce.com, Practice Fusion, and marketing automation solutions enable healthcare organizations to build loyalty while capturing additional data for personalized care delivery.
