Technology is the No. 1 concern for health care marketers in 2018, according to a report from Affect. Healthcare marketers continue to face challenges brought on by industry shifts and the need to adapt to evolving technologies and consumer needs.  However, these changes provide new opportunities to better engage consumers, position brands and establish organizations as a leader.
