Mimicry as Innovation

We all want innovation in Healthcare.

Innovation in medical devices.

Innovation in reimbursement.

Innovation in mobile applications.

Innovation in clinical collaboration.

Yes, innovation is needed.

Not always though.

Mimicry has its powers to change the world too.

Easy to forget the great things that work eternally.

Mimicry of expert nursing.

Mimicry of clear communications.

Mimicry of proper hand-washing technique.

Mimicry of of biological processes.

Mimicry of moral leadership.

We all need mimicry in Healthcare.

In a time when the horizon of technological emergence brightens, it’s easy for good mimicry to fall into the shadows.

Mimicry can be just as innovative as innovation.
