Accelerating Innovation In Information And Communication Technology For Health -- Crean 29 (2): 278 -- Health Affairs

Accelerating Innovation In Information And Communication Technology For Health -- Crean 29 (2): 278 -- Health Affairs: "Around the world, inventors are creating novel information and communication technology applications and systems that can improve health for people in disparate settings. However, it is very difficult to find investment funding needed to create business models to expand and develop the prototype technologies. A comprehensive, long-term investment strategy for e-health and m-health is needed. The field of social entrepreneurship offers an integrated approach to develop needed investment models, so that innovations can reach more patients, more effectively. Specialized financing techniques and sustained support from investors can spur the expansion of mature technologies to larger markets, accelerating global health impacts."

I completely agree ! This is why I am an angel investor in startups such as Plus91 which will use IT cleverly to improve health care in India !
