What innovation has the most potential for disruption along the patient journey, and at which stage?

We can no longer consider mobile, patient portals, email, electronic medical records (EMRs), and other digital media disruptive by themselves. They now are the landscape we live in. What will be disruptive is having the ability to transfer knowledge about behavior in one channel to another. In addition, we must continue to keep patient outcomes at the center of what we do — no disruption will be sustained if it cannot be tied back to improving health.
