2013 was certainly a great year for imagine.GO. We wanted to look back in less than two minutes and point out some of the highlights.
The Thought Life
In 2013, we were busy creating something entirely new. We launched modelH – a new way of thinking about healthcare business models. It creates value across the healthcare ecosystem and maps out a better way to build businesses.We were fortunate to have over 200 thought leaders contribute their thoughts.
In 2013, we also helped write a book on innovation that is due out in 2014 called Innovation Alchemists.
And finally, we did a lot of blogging on innovation in healthcare, with a particular focus on building better healthcare business models. We were honored with an award for my efforts – which was very gratifying. It is good to know there are others passionate about fixing healthcare.
The Spoken Life
2013 was also a great year to spread the word. We launched on some new social media platforms and was able to meet some new friends.
For example, one day we were followed by LeBron James – I have no idea why and I certainly do not believe that LBJ handles his own Twitter follows himself – but still – pretty cool right!
On a serious note, throughout 2013 I spoke often on topics like business model design and how to build a startup company. It is a privilege more than a job for me to speak about what I love. I am grateful for the chance to share my thoughts and have real conversions with serious people about the convergence of healthcare and the consumer.
The Work Life
2013 was a great year for imagine.GO. In short, we helped some great companies become even better.
We collaborated with large insurance companies to “go retail”. I built some new physical storefronts as well as some virtual ones. And we promoted the customer experience into healthcare and the customer’s perspective into product design.
We also launched a new company of my own – Let’s Do X, or simply LDX. LDX is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform and app designed to help healthcare providers and their patients coordinate efficiently in real-time through our proprietary mobile communications model. More on this idea soon.
The Volunteer Life
And finally, 2013 was a great year for helping others. We mentored several startups and helped launch a few new ideas at various startup accelerators, such as Startup Weekend. It is a privilege to teach and encourage burgeoning entrepreneurs.
The Good Life
This was a lot to accomplish, and it was only possible through the support of my co-workers and customers. We look forward to even more excitement in 2014. Thank you for making 2013 memorable.
To your health,
The Team at imagine.GO
