Disruptive Technology in Healthcare IT – Major Vendors Back Off?

March 28, 2007

In a response to a letter regarding the lack of major vendors at the HIMSS Venture Capital fair, Christensen and  Raynor’s in The Innovator’s Solution is cited regarding how established companies often view disruptive technology as a threat. They suggest, “The proven solution is to have senior managers make a solid commitment to address and allocate resources to the disruption and then place the responsibility to
commercialize it in an independent organizational unit.”

Is Web 2.0 one of those disruptive technologies being ignored or seen as a threat?  For instance, why purchase an extensive knowledge management system if an open source Wiki  can catalog your business knowledge across the enterprise.

Perhaps companies like PracticeFusion free EHR will  challenge some major players to rethink  strategy.
