North American healthcare providers and their patients will benefit from improved clinical decision making and triage thanks to a partnership announced today between Healthwise, Inc., and Capita Healthcare Decisions. The partnership will support the delivery of health content and patient education solutions across North America.
Healthwise, a trusted resource for up-to-date, evidence-based information, is a non-profit organisation that partners with hospitals and health systems, health plans, care management companies, and health websites to empower patients and achieve better health outcomes.
