Watch out, horse and carriage makers

At HIMSS this week, my business partner and I had lunch with a gentleman who, I guess you could say does things "the old way" which we do in a technology forward way. He has a successful business in medicine that probably will double in the next year.

Our goal was to talk with him about hopefully augmenting what they do and adding us on as a service.

Well, things didn't go so well.

He explained to use we'd go out of business, that we'd never make it, that we must make serious changes to our idea if we want to succeed.

All quite interesting since we are growing rapidly.

Simply warning to all you old vendors of health information and health information technology. 

There are a lot of us startups entering your space and they plan to steam roll you.

This isn't the 1890's where it took 30 years for cars to replace the horse and carriage.
