The report found millennials prefer to engage with their providers through modern technology, and this will pressure healthcare providers to embed more social, mobile, and cloud technologies in their day-to-day interactions with patients. An infographic by Salesforce.com examines how patients currently connect with providers and what the future of health will look like.
