While communications, technology, and software continue to benefit from Moore’s Law, healthcare is burdened with Baumol’s cost disease, which points to the lack of productivity gains in the healthcare sector as the cause behind the rising cost of healthcare services.

Basically, healthcare has been immune to innovation and technological advancements that drive productivity up, and costs down.

If we want to make healthcare more affordable and accessible we have to create innovations that increase the productivity rate — output supplied by an hour of labor — to the same rate as other progressive sectors like manufacturing & agriculture. …


Last week we had our biggest product launch since we started working on Nimbo almost 5 years ago.

Not only was it our biggest release, but everything was done in a 6-week cycle.

So, what did we release?

Nimbo Marketing — a whole new product to help physicians and clinics manage their digital reputations: SEO-optimized website, reviews, scheduling… the whole thing.

Nimbo Chat web client — not too long ago we released Nimbo Chat for iOS and Android — a better alternative than WhatsApp for physicians to talk with their patients. Now they can talk with their patients from within Nimbo.

Hoy en día es básicamente imposible imaginarse que una aerolínea podría tener éxito en el mercado sin el uso de software para optimizar sus rutas y definir los precios de sus boletos. De la misma manera, pensar que Wal-Mart podría seguir siendo competitivo sin el uso de software para administrar su logística y distribución de productos es casi una locura.

Así como estos dos casos hoy en día los consideramos “obvios”, en unos cuantos años veremos con los mismos ojos el caso de uso de software en hospitales y clínicas para llevar una mejor atención al paciente y una mejor operación. …

El concepto de Expediente Clínico Electrónico (ECE) surgió en los años 80’s — antes que el internet existiera — con el propósito de llevar la información médica del papel a la computadora.

Muchas cosas han cambiado desde ese entonces. Sin embargo, los Expedientes Clínicos Electrónicos siguen siendo esencialmente lo mismo que hace 30 años. No han evolucionado.

Por esa razón, la adopción de los ECE’s es tan baja. …

Y como nos ayudó a mejorar nuestro pricing en Nimbo X

Un producto es como un carrito de hot dogs. Donde tu funcionalidad “core” es el hot dog, y toda la funcionalidad adicional que tiene tu producto son el equivalente a las papitas, refrescos y extra toppings que vende el carrito.

Para Slack, el chat viene siendo el hot dog.

En Nimbo X, entender cuál es el hot dog y cuales son los toppings, papitas y refrescos nos ayudó a entender mejor nuestro pricing. Qué no funcionaba de él, y cómo lo podíamos ajustar para obtener mejores resultados.

Gratis si solo vas a usar el expediente clínico (hot dog). $20 dlls por mes si quieres perfil de asistente (refresco), alertas clínicas (papitas), dashboard de métricas (chiles toreados) y gráficas de signos vitales (ketchup, mostaza y mayonesa). …

“Under the surface, the two are not so different after all. They share a distinctive organizational culture that cares deeply about and acts with conviction on a small number of principles. I’m talking about customer obsession rather than competitor obsession, eagerness to invent and pioneer, willingness to fail, the patience to think long-term, and the taking of professional pride in operational excellence. Through that lens, AWS and Amazon retail are very similar indeed.”

— Jeff Bezos on the similarities between Amazon & AWS
