Setting Our Sights on Improving Health and Wellness
Healthcare offers profound and far-reaching opportunities for social innovation. Millions worldwide go without basic services, and millions more are at risk because of inefficient health systems and inconsistent quality of care. HP is collaborating with leading health authorities to reinvent processes, modernize systems, and develop solutions that dramatically expand access, improve care, and save lives.
Many of the challenges hindering healthcare boil down to complexity. Despite decades of effort, information remains fragmented, isolated, and difficult—if not impossible—to retrieve, use, and share. Paper-based records limit the flow of information. And electronic systems are often islands of information, unable to work with others.
As a result, caregivers are left to duplicate efforts, wasting time and resources. Or they must make critical decisions without having a complete picture of a patient's history. We're working to break down barriers to information, applying our expertise and technology to fundamentally improve the way entire healthcare systems work.
