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?

Start-ups are rebuilding the healthcare customer experience ... http://onforb.es/1EayMv2
The big healthcare incumbents struggle to become consumer-centric: it is now top-of-mind, but they have a long way to go. Start-ups and entrepreneurs are filling the gap.

There are no base hits for start-ups today ... http://onforb.es/1vnqwkm
Once upon a time, like ten years ago, entrepreneurs could make decent money building a business that hit milestones but never got big and sold for $10 - $20 million. These exits would pay entrepreneurs enough to sends kids to college and return 1x-2x capital for venture capitalists. They are [...]

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

Like "sitting is the new smoking", the value here is getting people to pay attention with a little bit of shock and a simple idea that focuses on an important issue: how their eating habits impact health. Entrepreneurs are again leading the way with products and services that help.

For great start-ups, merely "exponential" growth is not enough ... http://onforb.es/1FSrsTW
We know start-ups need to grow fast. Most people would say that doubling every year (100%/year) is great growth. In my experience, 100%/year doesn't do it. In its first few years a great start-up needs a growth explosion that takes it to a significant scale.
