I came across this interesting tweet and image from @joyclee:

I look forward to participating in a discussion around this graphic in the comments. Please be sure to chime in.
My main complaint with the graphic is that the level of healthcare driven innovation should be higher. I’m torn on if it’s higher or lower than patient driven innovation. Either way, I think it deserves to be higher.
I think that some people confuse making noise with true healthcare innovation. It’s one thing to make a bunch of noise. It’s another to really impact health care. I love grass roots efforts to “hack healthcare.” However, I’ve seen a lot of efforts that haven’t really made an impact.
Of course, I guess it’s worth discussing if an innovation needs to have impact to be considered an innovation. I look forward to reading your thoughts in the comments.
