The United States spends around $2 trillion on healthcare a year, making it the most expensive health system in the world, yet the US consistently ranks poorly for key markers such as life expectancy.

Open source technologies like Drupal can be leveraged to improve care and meet the challenges posed by the Affordable Care Act. In this webinar, Achieve Internet, which is leveraging Drupal to actively develop solutions, will examine how Open Source innovations are helping the healthcare Industry address these challenges.

Achieve will be joined by Tom Hall of Dexcom Inc. to discuss how Drupal was able to increase sales of medical devices and streamline workflow, all while maintaining the highest level of HIPAA compliance.

In this webinar you will learn about:
• The current state and challenges facing Healthcare in the U.S.
• The value of open source
• Lessons learned from Dexcom’s Tom Hall
• What Achieve is doing to harness open source to drive outcomes
