April 28, 2021: Digital enhances all aspects of care, extends the reach of health systems and enables new care paradigms. During the pandemic we saw the beginning of a move to more convenient environments like the home or retail.

How are they thinking about a return to the office post pandemic? And as a global company, how will Hillrom continue to innovate in the traditional and emerging digital space moving forward?
