Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations to Benefit From HP and Software Partner Technology Offerings

HP HPQ -0.04% today announced a new healthcare affiliate program that combines offerings from independent software vendors with hardware from HP so hospitals and healthcare organizations can better deliver cost-effective, efficient and high-quality care.
