The Covid-19 crisis presents an opportunity for Microsoft to participate in a dramatic shift with regards to how both society and the medical community view the delivery of health care. COVID-19 has made the standard office visit not only a challenge for those suffering the symptoms but dangerous for everyone else. This has advanced the understanding and the opportunity for virtual care and accelerated a long forecasted trend for the “homespital” (“dehospitilzationof healthcare) enabled by seamless, timely and frictionless communication across care providers, virtual care and remote monitoring services. As a result, the notion of in-home care services (also referred to as Connected Care) will become an increasingly used and vital mechanism for everyone.
