Venture Capitalist funding on the rise again
According to this article, venture capital funding is again on the rise. Health Care is definitely a focal point for funding (much needed, IMHO). Of course, one of the challenges will be deploying solutions which are not just expensive "one-off" solutions, where every deployment in any geographical or logical area is unique to that area, and thus more expensive. Finding open source solutions which are broadly applicable across the health care industry, as well as help drive more accuracy in diagnostics, more follow up in referrals, and a better holistic picture of our individual (or family) health would be an excellent area to help drive down costs in health care while raising the overall quality of health care.
