Focus: Augmented Reality

When you’re about to launch new software, hardware, or programs, you may be focusing on the technical aspects of the launch. But there’s another angle you need to consider: user buy-in. That was the concern for USPI, a company that owns more than 300 surgical centers and hospitals across the US, when it was preparing for its new staffing software rollout.
