Submitted by Marshall Riddle on Thu, 05/17/2012 - 12:55

  1. The old-fashioned way, by investing in academic research and development.
  2. Create a space for identifying new ideas. Mostashari pointed to the 17 Beacon communities designated by his office as places to try out new technologies.
  3. Provide data. The government collects a lot of health care data on a regular basis.
  4. Smart regulation can unleash innovation, if we don’t make the regulation so that it gives an advantage to the biggest players, to the ones with the ability to navigate the greatest complexity
  5. Promote competition. The Office of the National Coordinator has supported a product developer competition run by Health 2.0.
