Technology is transforming health care. High-speed data transfer and intelligent devices offer the promise of faster, more accurate diagnoses and improved communication. These benefits are especially critical for families in low-income neighborhoods, who often have less access to health care providers.
The Samsung Innovation Center at Children’s Health Fund is working to ensure families in poverty don’t become trapped in a “digital divide.” By pairing Samsung’s technical expertise with Children’s Health Fund’s decades of experience in breaking down barriers to care, we’re using the latest technologies to make health care more accessible for children in need.
