“The global nature of our work necessitated we look for a malleable solution that will adapt to the needs and regulations of various countries,” Jim Slack, vice president at Sanford World Clinic said. “We can build clinical workflows to fit our exact needs, no matter the speciality of care or the language requirement.”
