Just a short blog to wish all those who drop by the Season’s best.
It has been quite a year and much of the hope we stated it with has really yet to actually come to fruition, sadly.
The saddest things to me have been the consistent lack of leadership in the e-Health space and the persistent stupidity of the belief held by some really hopeless bureaucrats that something can happen without both quality leadership, some effective governance and some reasonable seeding investment.
The amount of time and effort that has been wasted because these three things were missing is terrible and the denial that is actually matters in terms of patient’s lives and limbs borders on the criminal in my view.
The good things this year have all been about the hardy souls in the commercial e-Health space who have been prepared to chance their arm and just go for it! They all know who they are so there is no point providing a list as I would be certain to leave some good guy or gal out!
I really hope 2010 can be a much better year for all concerned.
As a really amazing note, this is blog post number 1100. At least I hope I get a few points for effort!
Go well, be safe and have a great break.
I plan to be back typing away on January 4, 2010.
