I just started a Linkein group--Crafting the Future of Health IT with Novel Solutions--located at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=2697006&trk=anet_ug_hm&goback=%2Eanh_2697006. You are welcomed to join!
The primary purpose of this group is to build and deploy novel health IT solutions that continually raise the bar of possibility and meaningful use. To help achieve this goal in a win-win manner, we are focused on combining group members’ products with my company’s novel architectural platform and supplemental (add-on) applications.
I started this group because I believe a good business strategy for small HIT companies in this economic climate focuses on collaboration and networking. As such, we are eager to form close business relationships with the individuals and companies that join this group.
To implement this strategy, we will share the details of our patented technology; provide very fair licensing agreements; support beta groups; and enable the cost-efficient interoperability between members EHRs, PHRs and any other clinical and business tools that provide added value.
My goal is to assist others in understanding what we have to offer in order form close collaborative business relationships that BENEFIT EVERYONE INVOLVED. After all, something as complex as improving the healthcare system in meaningful ways is a global effort requiring the voices, ideas, innovations and work of many (across multiple disciplines and nations), as well as the integration of many different technological approaches, both conventional and disruptive.
I encourage probing questions, challenges to my claims, business and technical suggestions, exploration of how third-party health IT products can interoperate using our architecture, etc. This kind of honest, critical, direct discussion and relationship-building is the purpose of our group.
I contend that though our combined knowledge, creativity and efforts we will develop an affordable, secure, ever-evolving and all-encompassing HIT system that will be envied by others and will never become obsolete.
