Come join the ninth Fisher Silicon Valley CIO Roundtable of the year!

A very interesting discussion at our next meeting. If you are not in healthcare the digital disruption content can be refocused for your industry. There was a 2014 HBR article about applying ideas outside your industry can be beneficial (Sometimes the Best Ideas Come from Outside Your Industry).

Digital Disruption in Healthcare – Fact or Fiction?
Digital disruption has happened in many industries, but not fully in healthcare … even though all signs indicate that the industry is ripe for disruption. There are key technology trends able to drive this transformation and a variety of players leveraging these tools. However, driving disruption requires more than technology. New, agile ways of designing business models, strategies and products are needed. CIOs are not only familiar with technology tools, but also with agile ways of delivering digital products and can play an important role in leading their businesses towards needed innovation.
