“Black Swan”, a theory developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, is the occurrence of a highly improbable event that has a major impact on our lives.

1. Healthcare delivery will continue to become increasingly fragmented
2. Digital Health Innovation’s Shining Moment
3. Accelerate Innovation Adoption or Shrivel Up

  • The meteoric adoption of telehealth?
  • The reimbursement for telephonic care? (long eschewed across all payors)
  • A disruption to the traditional healthcare model?
In hindsight, these seem obvious (except probably the last one).

But lamenting the lack of foresight is pointless.
