"The most dangerous decision-making fallacy is that informed decision-makers will naturally make better, more objective decisions. Making consistently timely, effective, informed decisions takes hard work. Trust me – it’s worth it. Effective decision-making is the essential common ingredient behind every successful step, initiative, and strategy that people, organizations, and national governments undertake."
Technological #innovations remain the primary engines of economic growth. Harvard’s Clayton Christensen broadly classified innovations as sustaining and disruptive based on their competitive trajectories. Sustaining innovations help organizations improve and sustain their current market position and compelling customer-patient value propositions. Disruptive innovations emerge when competitors offer alternative value propositions based on simpler, less expensive, good enough a
An astonishing 90%+ of Americans believe that yearly #physicals and doctor visits are a good idea. It’s a marketing coup and an unparalleled opportunity for the medical community to deliver compelling value to its customer-patients. Surprisingly, a growing cadre of well-known doctors and providers actively oppose these services because some studies suggest they don’t improve patient outcomes and help drive the high costs of #healthcare. The issue emerged during our recent Ha
All technologies introduce controversies and disruptive technologies can kick up a storm. My colleagues and I have experienced these reactions across industries, academia, and government. I have also identified, traced, and analyzed similar responses to technological progress dating to the early 1800s. In this context, remote patient monitoring (RPM) systems are the latest disruptive technological innovations to challenge established practices, professions, businesses, and ma
Advances in technology, particularly sensors, physiological models and artificial intelligence (AI) are poised to revolutionize fitness and health. They will also disrupt traditional healthcare, from doctors’ offices to emergency rooms. At stake will be the most intimate aspects of human existence: longevity, quality of life and independence. The nation is in desperate need of this emerging revolution because, if you run the numbers as we have, it’s evident that even the m
While improvements in fitness and preventive healthcare are increasing longevity and quality of life, they cannot entirely prevent wear and tear on the body. Keeping fit requires physical effort, which places heavy demands on bones, muscles and tendons. Active people inevitably face strains and other injuries that affect their ability to remain active and fit. These can accumulate over a lifetime, leading to chronic pain and limited mobility, the enemies of fitness and hea
