Consumerization of Care, the #1 Healthcare IT Trend of 2019
NEW YORK (February 7, 2019) – Connexient, the healthcare leader in digital wayfinding and indoor GPS announced today double-digit growth in 2018, adding multiple marquee health system clients to its customer base.

Patient and family are firmly in the center now and that’s driving a lot of disruption.
