This illustrative model shows that the difference between Leaders and Laggards’ revenue growth is projected to widen. Leaders' expected, self-reported growth is represented by the purple line and Laggards the blue line. Dollar values illustrate opportunity cost for a hypothetical organization with $1billion in revenue in 2015.

Healthcare Leaders have a deliberate stance toward technology adoption and a clear vision for what their organizations’ future systems should look like.
While some leaders are born, others are made: Everyone can emulate the mindset and methods of the top 10%
But it’s not just about collecting new tools; they prioritize and sequence implementations in optimal ways. They cultivate Future Systems, a state in which organizations adopt complex, interconnected living systems of technologies, applications and people. As a result, their systems allow for a seamless flow of product and service innovations from one process to another.
Laggards, on the other hand, have faith in a “fast follower” approach, implementing technologies as individual point solutions without a plan for cultivating systems. So, when a potentially game-changing innovation comes along, they fail to scale it.
Let’s take a closer look at why healthcare Leaders are building thriving Future Systems, which are boundaryless, adaptable and radically human:
Boundaryless systems take advantage of blurring boundaries to create new spaces where ideas and partnerships can flourish.
Historically, the components of the IT-stack—database, applications and infrastructure—have been treated as independent entities. These days, divisions are fading.
Boundaryless organizations utilize the cloud, have a uniform approach to data, security and governance, and have established paths for exploring unconventional business/technology partnerships.
