I saw this tweet from David Chou and thought that it was a good predictor of where healthcare is heading as we move to a value based care world. Check it out below:

When people see this graphic, they always point out how small of an impact healthcare delivery has on your health. That’s an important point, but I’m more interested in knowing how the other 90% impact health and the innovations in healthcare that are embracing these areas.

This graphic seems like a great indicator of where healthcare needs to head and where I believe it will head. The best innovations in health will be around influencing behavioral factors and genetics. What do you think? What companies do you know that work in these areas that we should be watching more closely?

I’m a huge fan of sucking the nectar out of Twitter and providing me own commentary on what people are sharing.


This would be a good step forward. Machine to machine communication can be a lot more accurate.


When you see some of the amazing things they’re starting to discover in genetics, you can see why many are focusing on genetics. However, Pat’s point is a good one that we should focus on other social determinants of health (SDOH) also since they can have a lot of impact.


This is where the cloud is so powerful. Cloud computing is going to be the solution to this problem.


I see more and more efforts to include the patient voice. Love this!
