Never Ignore Innovation

Never Ignore Innovation

People diagnosed with certain serious medical maladies today are lucky that they weren’t diagnosed 5, 10 or 20 years ago. Why? Innovation.

Constant innovation in medicine promotes better patient outcomes than were possible 5, 10 or 20 years ago.

Constant innovation means

  • Not settling for treatments that have a certain efficacy today.
  • Reducing the cost and healing time associated with treatments.
  • Ability to use genomics to more rapidly diagnose and determine a treatment plan days, weeks or months earlier is promoting far better patient outcomes.

It’s also important to consider that some patient outcomes can be positively influenced by treatments outside what is often referred to as “Western medicine.” These treatments are commonly referred to as “alternative medicine.” Every course of treatment is really an alternative if you think about it that way.

Is your company driving innovation to improve customer outcomes? Or, are you focused on preserving the status quo while a more agile competitor catches you flat-footed and takes your market share?

    Excellent thoughts! Invent, innovate or die! To paraphrase Bob Dylan, if you are not busy being busy being born, you’re busy dying. You choose!
