It’s been nearly two years since we started publishing this newsletter, and it’s grown to a dedicated readership of several hundred healthcare technology executives. Times change, tastes change. Sometimes you have to leave behind the past to move forward. Some call it creative destruction. In keeping with the spirit of progress, we’ve decided to transition to a new and exciting format for keeping our industry colleagues informed of the latest happenings and trends in healthcare and emerging technologies in the coming year. This will be our final issue of the The Healthcare Leader. You will hear from me in the new year about our new initiative.

This has been an eventful year for healthcare, to say the least. We thought about how to make it a fitting ending for this newsletter and decided the best way to do it would be to curate some of the most interesting highlights in healthcare during 2017, which should make for interesting holiday reading. I also decided to include a handful of my blogs in CIO online, including my final blog of the year where I discuss my 4 predictions for 2018, and a new blog in healthcare analytics news where I discuss my book The Big Unlock (if you haven’t bought your copy yet – please do!).

2017 was the best year so far for Damo Consulting, and we are extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s top technology brands. We couldn’t have done it without our well-wishers, our sponsors, and our dedicated team. We remain committed to our exclusive focus on the healthcare technology markets, and we hope to expand our client relationships in the new year. If you are thinking of bringing in a partner to help you achieve your growth objectives in 2018, I would love to hear from you.

Happy holidays from all of us here at Damo Consulting.
