Technology is a complementary tool to medical practice. Understanding this is key to integrate digital solutions into the health sector, agreed panelists on Day 2 of Mexico Health Summit. Ricardo Rentería, Sales Management Enterprise Lead Latam of Amazon Web Services (AWS), said the current crisis is an opportunity for corporate culture to change in favor of innovation and technology. For Mario Muniz, General Manager North LATAM of IQVIA, however, regulation is what is stopping technology from blooming. Jesus Díaz Garaygordobil, CIO of Christus Muguerza, added that hospitals are the best place to foster technology adoption. In the panel moderated by Mario Sicilia, Member of the Board of Laboratorio Medico Polanco and Managing Partner of ProActive Capital, most participants pointed at ECR as the priority for the industry. “We have to implement this immediately because it is the foundation to evolve to a better healthcare system,” said Enrique Méndez, Territory Account Manager of Ergotron.
