Recognition
High-tech, high-cost medicine; ageing populations; patient mobility and staff shortages are only some of the challenges healthcare providers face today. Intelligent IT solutions increase cost-effectiveness, productivity and safety and help healthcare facilities to confront these problems. IT @ 2012 brings these innovations into the global spotlight and provides them with the recognition and media attention they deserve.

Their stories will inspire others, proving that challenges can be transformed into future opportunities and success stories.
