Incorporate outside innovations before they force their way in
There was a recent piece in HBR's blog (first link) that presents the case for bringing outside innovations into health care. In it, Mike Wagner describes the complacency many hospitals fall into as they A) think of their care delivery as above-average, and B) consider their challenges, especially managerial ones, as fundamentally different than those of other industries. As a result, they cease to innovate and look outside their own walls for ideas.
This may not come as news to any of you, since we're all in a community dedicated to innovation to improve health care delivery. However, there are fundamentally disruptive forces at work here which are coming regardless of hospitals' willingness to innovate. To that end, I also included a different sort of piece (second link), which describes what the future of health care holds as "traditionally ... untouchable jobs" start to be mechanized.
