Wishing healthcare an innovative new year

As I gear up to deliver my first tech talk at the Illinois Technology Association on Jan. 25, I take a step back and relive my innovative experience delivering a similar session at the Gartner ITXPO Symposium last year. It is all about bringing the trifecta of business, technology and culture together to make Innovation real. Healthcare, for example, is a fascinating domain where there is always scope for innovation that can have a direct impact on our daily lives — whether it be from the perspective of the patient, the healthcare provider or the payer. Consider this paper-based device that can spin blood like a centrifuge — and thus called, lo and behold — Paperfuge! Or this app that took just a few minutes to diagnose the problem that took the doctors 16 years to find! Technology Innovation matters if and when it leads to business differentiation. Join me in wishing healthcare an innovative new year of 2017 — and if you happen to be in the area, I look forward to having an innovative discussion on this very topic at Tech Nexus on Wacker Drive in Chicago.
