This past year I’ve been exploring different aspects of “health tech” -- including technology used in healthcare & technology that helps health (outside of healthcare). I have been especially interested in health tech innovation and the contexts in which innovation occurs. Technology development and implementation do not happen in a vacuum…there is a web of people and subsets of data involved.

People often equate “health tech” with only EMR, smartphone apps, or sensor watches. However, there are many other stakeholders and sources of data to involve if society is to truly leverage the power of technology to improve health.

I keep mentioning data because even with physical devices, many (will) involve collecting, analyzing, displaying, &/or transmitting data. Data is often what ultimately connects the stakeholders, and data is what gets transformed into information that influences each stakeholder’s actions.

Lately quite a few colleagues have asked me for a copy of the diagrams I scribble on scratch paper during our meetings. In an effort to help more people understand and innovate in the health tech ecosystem, I am sharing the following drafts. They are not meant to be perfect exhaustive lists of every possible example and relationship, but rather a high level overview. Let me know if you think of other key items to add or modify for when I get a chance to update this, thanks!

  • Wen, this is a great start. It could benefit by adding the goverment agencies, DoD, VA, and CMS as well as the regulatory agencies and healthcare standards organizations (SDO, SRO's), HHS ONC, HL7, NCPDP, OMG, Regenstreif, etc. It's a very complex landscape.

  • Thanks for your interest in this. I'm hoping entrepreneurs will keep the 'big picture' in mind when developing products that meet the needs and use cases of more than just small niche segments.

  • Wen, thanks so much for pulling all these disparate elements and players together to bring clarity to the world of health tech and make it immediately comprehensible. This has to be one of the rare instances of that!

  • 1. The Health Tech Ecosystem This past year I’ve been exploring different aspects of “health tech” -- including technology used in healthcare & technology that helps health (outside of healthcare). I have been especially interested in health tech innovation and the contexts in which innovation occurs. Technology development and implementation do not happen in a vacuum…there is a web of people and subsets of data involved. People often equate “health tech” with only EMR, smartphone apps, or sensor watches. However, there are many other stakeholders and sources of data to involve if society is to truly leverage the power of technology to improve health. I keep mentioning data because even with physical devices, many (will) involve collecting, analyzing, displaying, &/or transmitting data. Data is often what ultimately connects the stakeholders, and data is what gets transformed into information that influences each stakeholder’s actions. Lately quite a few colleagues have asked me for a copy of the diagrams I scribble on scratch paper during our meetings. In an effort to help more people understand and innovate in the health tech ecosystem, I am sharing the following drafts.
