I had a great call this week with the panelists for our “Rise of the Disrupters” panel at the upcoming HME News Business Summit in Nashville. I think this session, alone, will be worth the price of admission. When I asked panelist Dan Afrasiabi whether being a disrupter was something that came naturally to him or something he had to work hard at, he said it was the latter. “To borrow from Andy Grove from Intel, 'Only the paranoid survive,'” he said. “That's how I do...

July 17, 2014Liz Beaulieu, Editor

I've had great conference calls this week with the moderators and panelists for the three panel discussions at this year's HME News Business Summit. (Shameless plug: It's less than two months away, by the way, so register today!) The topics of the panel discussions are partnership opportunities among healthcare providers, strategic planning and outside investment in HME. I get really amped up for the Summit after these calls. Hearing the panelists chime in on what they plan to talk about during the...
