re: Clinical Analytics Gets Up Close And Personal
I think the medical malpractice market causes physicians to be the opposite of forward thinkers. They have to practice text book style and be as defensive as possible. Doctors spend 10 years trying to be come the best doctor they can be and then get slammed by medical malpractice. Clinical analytics is a great idea and is the right direction. For this to gain traction though the doctors are going to need some protection should they deviate from the standard of care.

Good choices on innovators. I like the idea of analytics to predict the readmission rates of patients and how to help them once they leave the hospital. I'm sure that it saves them costs also, but also goes a long way toward helping patients in the long run.
