Horse racing is not the sport of kings, grasshopper. The true sport of kings is patent litigation ... http://onforb.es/1dcjhIW
"Patent reform" legislation pending before Congress, described as a curb on patent trolls, will make it much harder for any small company to defend its patent rights. Here is a real example of how that works.

Value based medicine often turns out to be the same old pig with new lipstick ... http://onforb.es/1TfbJGr
Healthcare and government leaders talk a lot about value-based payment changing the way U.S. healthcare works. But, a closer look shows that “value” is often measured on the basis of procedures. And, value as experienced by medical customers* is still not a big factor in the provider incentive equation.

Digital healthcare is still in the awkward stage ... http://onforb.es/1eAyGnC
A large-scale survey of U.S. doctors tells us that doctors are using digital tools and willing to receive data feeds from their customers, but they are quite frustrated by poor usability of digital healthcare tools and difficulty getting measurable results[1].

Reflecting on tough decisions and lessons I've learned as an investor ... http://onforb.es/1EGvyQA
How much money to raise is the most difficult discussion between entrepreneurs and investors. The perspectives are different, interests can be misaligned, and the stakes are huge. Here is how the two groups think about the problem.

Trying to figure out what is happening in primary care and what opportunities it creates ... http://onforb.es/1yYh1tL
Primary care in the U.S. is now in the throes of revolution. Many agree that stronger primary care is central to a better performing healthcare system. But dramatically different business, delivery, and clinical models are emerging and competing.

I heard virtual reality hyped a couple of times this week; trying to work out if it is the new, new thing ... http://onforb.es/1Hcu6aH
Pundits claim that Virtual Reality will explode in the next five years, and major tech platform vendors are piling in. Should we conclude that virtual reality is the next new, new thing?

When does optimism turn into deceit? ... http://onforb.es/1N3u8lp
We constantly need to juggle optimism and deceit. Optimism breeds success, but the price of deceit is high for all concerned, and the line between them can be fine. How can you tell when optimism has gone too far?

How good are you at shopping for health insurance? http://onforb.es/1G0dTTA
Some health insurers are proposing big premium hikes in 2016, up to 51%. These increases would be painful for consumers who don't shop for best value. Consumers need to acquire resources and knowledge that makes them effective shoppers.

Are successful entrepreneurs just life's lottery winners? http://onforb.es/1IChdaX
President Obama said recently that high earners are just the winners in life's economic lottery. This rhetoric is dangerous because it disrespects and demotivates people who make an enormous difference to the success of our economy.

South Africa seen through the eyes of a venture capital investor ... http://onforb.es/1yW1QGG
Traveling in South Africa this month, I saw a country where the need and potential for entrepreneur-driven job creation are great, but the social enablers are lacking, and the consequence is a costly and painful vicious cycle.

Don't be surprised if your doctor is not excited about your runs, reps, and yoga poses ... http://onforb.es/1bwKgyH
Many smart phone users gather data about their healthy behavior, and, propelled by enthusiasm, offer to share the data with their doctors. Oddly, many doctors are not excited. How could that be?
