Ted Talk: Joel Selanikio – Improving Technology Distribution Impacts Healthcare Big Data

January 7, 2014

This is a great Ted Talk for those tech companies disributing their technology on a global level like LitCentral, Inc. The title is a tad ambigous because Joel Selanikio's message is really about evolving software distribution and then reaping the rewards of the data produced by pervasive distribution. In summary, if the limitations of you and your staff are standing in the way of your healthcare technology reaching its full potential and helping people all around the globe, you need to figure out how to get the hell out of the way.

There are only 24 hours in a day, and it's simply not possible to physically implement technology in multiple places at the same time, if the project hinges on a few masterminds.  However, the world doesn't have time to wait on your availability, especially if your technology is helping improve healthcare. Selanikio speaks about people and organizations being more technology savvy than we often give them credit. So begin designing the implementation of your products and applications around the indispubtable fact technology has finally reached the Four Corners. Hardware like tablets, smartphones, ATMs, or even a $10 cell phone – coupled with communication like text, email, and social networking – have educated the world abroad in tech, and reach crevises of the earth you never knew existed.  If you design the user experience like Facebook and Hotmail for viral global deployment, chances are your impact on healthcare will be bigger and faster while requiring less handholding.
