Disruptive technologies and innovations are what happens when a certain type of technology, the implementation of an innovative process and/or the introduction of a new player creates a market shift in how the health care sector does business. These disruptions can transform how we educate providers, how and where we deliver health care services and/or how we finance health care delivery systems.
