There are many forms of innovations. Sometimes medical innovation is nanotechnology, molecular imaging, high-precision targeted therapy, or 3D-printed prosthetic, which are advancements whose adaptation rate are limited by the rate of research. This is a good thing.
And then, there exists technology that has become commonplace in every other industry but is still considered “innovation” in medicine due to their glacial adaptation rates in hospitals and clinics. Case in point: When was the last time you saw a pager that doesn’t belong to a healthcare provider?
