In Nashville on Friday, at the Vanderbilt Healthcare Conference, I gave a short talk on a panel focused on the question “What’s next for healthcare information technology innovation?”

The talk focused on answering a couple of key questions:

  • What does innovation in healthcare mean?
  • Where are the major areas in healthcare where innovation is required?

And it had a few key takeaways:

  • Understand health tech buyer fallacies
  • Understand PBU: Payer vs. Benefiter vs. User
  • Understand why healthcare businesses buy stuff so you can build the right thing
