House Calls 2.0 Come Knocking

Philip Betbeze, for HealthLeaders Media, June 17, 2011

Entrepreneurism is alive and well in healthcare, and it seems as though just about everyone with a big wallet and bigger ideas is bidding that their idea to make healthcare better, faster, and cheaper is knocking on the virtual door to be let into the game.

Why? Lots of people have opinions, but mine is that the rush to create something new in healthcare delivery is finally happening because it's gotten so expensive that most regular people are finally having to pay for much of it out of their own pockets. That allows entrepreneurs with a good idea to potentially do an end run around the seemingly boundless bureaucracy that in the past has easily encircled and strangled innovation in healthcare. Suddenly, faster, better and cheaper actually matters.

It might be time for you to get on that bandwagon too.
