In medicine we’re trapped in a system that values laundry lists over ideas. But we need to think about what we value.
In the knowledge economy, ideas are the new commodity. Steven Johnson tells us that the most innovative ideas throughout history have resulted from networks of creative people collaborating and challenging one another to explore the adjacent possible. It’s how we begin to solve problems. Peter Diamandis has it right in his book, Abundance: ”In a rapidly changing technological culture and an ever-growing information-based economy, creative ideas are the ultimate resource.”
While we are likely to remain preoccupied with lengthy lists, the medical leader of tomorrow will trade globally in the currency of ideas.
