I had the privilege of participating in the Markley Data Center Summit in Boston last month. The topic of my keynote presentation was The Future of Healthcare and the Internet. I wrote a guest post about the topic which is posted on the Markley Cloud Services Blog. The post is an overview of what I see ahead in the field of healthcare. I am generally optimistic about healthcare, but there are many healthcare challenges in the United States. The cost of care is not the only challenge, but certainly a big one. For example, see 21 graphs that show America’s health-care prices are ludicrous from the Washington Post.
The Markley event was well attended despite a cold and snowy day. There were 300-400 attendees. After lunch I participated on a panel along with several information technology experts, including my son Aaron. You can see a video of the panel discussion here.
