The Pandemics are different from the long-term events in healthcare. It generates the acute need for accelerated responses to contain the casualties and the impact on the health system. With a quick response, the health system can gain better outcomes. Understanding where the vaccines are necessary and the other information related to it, the positive outcome comes.

When it comes to the question of the major consequences of this acceleration, the answer can mark the opportunities it offers. Monsarrat agrees that they must not add another cooperation. One example of this is the reopening of borders, hospitality, and travel. All these things need to cooperate with private bodies and the government.
Another thing that is driving the discussion is the rise of data. He has developed treatments against the new variant with the use of technology. He has used analytics, machine learning to understand trends and happenings.
This is not only about the pandemics. It is also helpful for chronic diseases. With the help of it, people can stay in good shape with the proper monitoring. It helps to anticipate the acute phases and helps to reduce the cost for the health system.
They play the role of helping the clients across the ecosystem to get the opportunities for the transformation. They improve the access and the experience along with the outcomes with human ingenuity and technology.
While talking about the opportunities for the companies in the other sector, Monsarrat said that telcos could have the benefit. The NHS in the UK has recently decided to access primary care in a virtual mode. It generates an opportunity for the telcos as they can bundle the services in their offerings.
