If you’re active in healthcare on Twitter, then you will have certainly seen tweets from @HealthcareWen. She’s one of my favorite people to spend time with in the healthcare IT community. She recently published some really great slides (embedded below) that diagram the health tech ecosystem.

As she says on the first slide, they’re basically diagrams that she was scribbling on paper during her meetings with colleagues. Personally, I think they’re a beautiful look at the complexity that’s found in healthcare. Although, with complexity it can also really illustrate the opportunity available to innovators.
