“86% of healthcare CEOs believe technological advances will transform their businesses in the next five years.” PwC, 2014

Welcome to e-CareManagement blog and the website of consultant, writer, and speaker Vince Kuraitis! On this page you’ll find:

POV and Key Themes

Digital networks, platforms and apps are disrupting proprietary, closed technologies and business models.

Healthcare is transforming from “hoarding” to “sharing” health information and workflow.

The shift from hoarding to sharing is leading to the era of “strategic openness” in health care – where companies gain competitive advantage from sharing information and workflow.

The transformation of our current healthcare non-system is already underway. Track the progress of the transformation here.

Healthcare is joining the digital economy. Drawing from lessons being learned by innovators in healthcare and other industries, you’ll discover frameworks and examples of how companies and care providers are creating and capturing value in new ways.

About e-CareManagement Blog

Started in 2007, the e-CareManagement blog is different from other healthcare industry blogs.

Most other industry blogs bring a siloed POV — perspective and advocacy for unique industry stakeholders, e.g., hospitals, physicians, pharma, IT, etc.

I believe health and healthcare need to be built around the needs of our patients, not the needs of industry participants. A patient centric approach also promises the most powerful business models — ones with strong network effects.

This blog focuses ACROSS healthcare industry sectors — breaking down the silos of healthcare to improve care coordination, chronic disease management, sharing of information and clinical workflow to benefit our patients.

Topics addressed in the e-CareManagement blog weave together

  • Information and communication technologies
  • Care coordination and chronic disease management
  • Healthcare entering the digital economy — networks, platforms, apps
  • Strategy and business models
