Synopsis on the Romanian Healthtech Startup Ecosystem
Keywords:Information Science, Entrepreneurship
In the practice of medicine, change is inevitable. New techniques are created, procedures are updated, and levels of expertise are increased. Innovation is everything and nothing remains the same for long. Healthcare professionals either adapt to change or get left behind. But healthcare professionals are not machines. They are human beings and humans are risk-averse, preferring the safety of what is known over the thrill of innovation. Patient care needs protocols and evidence-based medicine to ensure that the right care is provided at the right time and place. Change requires an incontrovertible proof, which is not always easy to obtain. It has been theorized that the practice of medicine as we know it today is an era that will pass. But that's a long way away. And in the meantime, there are eras within eras. New science is discovered, and new theories are proven. And then, we try to convince ourselves to change our practices in line with what we know.
