Partners HealthCare Symposium: ‘A new level of maturity’ can boost health IT

The basic infrastructure is largely in place to foster widespread low-cost innovation in health IT, Bill Geary of Northbridge Venture Partners said as part of a panel discussion last week at the Partners Connected Health Symposium.

“We’re seeing the ability on relatively small dollars to build really compelling tools that providers absolutely need to run their businesses. It’s so incredibly disruptive to legacy vendors, but in healthcare, we needed to see that cost curve collapse to really get innovative products,” he’s quoted as saying at Mobihealth News.
