Is Disruptive Innovation Really Such A Good Thing?
This week I read an essay by Health Futures President Jeff Goldsmith which made a case for moving beyond a much-beloved way of thinking about innovation and growth. In his essay, which appeared in The Health Care Blog, author Goldsmith argues that the concept of disruption as having “passed its sell-by date” after mass adoption by those who see it as gospel.

In this book, Christensen defines disruptive innovation as the process in w...

Art Is in the Eye of the Computer
BY KIM BELLARD It turns out that I’ve been writing about Generative AI without even realizing there was something called Generative AI, such as articles about the robot artist Ai-Da, the AI image creator DALL-E, or patent protection for AI inventors.  Generative AI refers to AI that strives not just to process and synthesize data but to actually be creative.  It’s starting to both become more widespread and to attract serious attention from investors.   James Currier of investment firm NFX sees “Generative Tech” as the next big thing: “If crypto hadn’t happened, we’d probably be calling THIS Web3.”...

The state of health care and adult social care in England 2021/22
Care Quality Commission - This year's annual assessment is that the health and care system is gridlocked and unable to operate effectively. Most people are still receiving good care when they can access it – too often, however, people are not able to access the care they need. Without action now, staff retention will continue to decline across health and care, increasing pressure across the system and leading to worse outcomes for people. Services will be further stretched, and people will be at gre ater risk of harm as staff try to deal with the consequences of a lack of access to community services, including...
