One comment on “Healthcare and Technology : Garnering Interest in Your Product

  • Howard,
    Great garden. Great insights. The irony is that all of the necessary pieces are available now – the hardware, the software – the technology exists now. The missing piece is physician education. You and I – admitted tech-geeks – are not average physicians. Yes, many of us are tech savvy, but physicians are notoriously late adopters with respect to technology in our own lives, despite working on a daily basis with some of the most advanced technology that humankind has ever invented. The sad truth is, many physicians dont know what they dont know; they don’t know what is possible, how well their practice can run. It will help to have practices such as yours, optimized by technically savvy docs, to provide models. Thanks for the story and analogy, and for providing such a great model – both the tech streamlined practice, and for the engaged physician.
