Six days ago, I asked our community to predict which entity would lead in-home healthcare in 6 years:
- A new startup we haven’t heard of yet
- An existing traditional healthcare player
- Or the government!?
3,500 participated in the prediction challenge, and the verdict is in!
>>> If you haven’t participated in the prediction poll yet, give it a try here.
Who won, and why?
First of all, both “government” (2.85%) and “existing healthcare companies” (3.66%) received minimal support… setting us up for a significant change later this decade.
But with nearly 29% of the vote — winning by a landslide — was “a startup we’ve never heard of”...
… And here were the top 2 reasons:
- “It will require a new approach, [of] which established organization[s] with vested interests cannot conceive.”
- “Entrenched businesses impede innovative solutions. Startups are free to fail.”
But what about the runner-ups?
For the first time, we ran a FutureLoop “Sudden Death Elimination” phase to see which candidate won second place in the prediction challenge. Here are the results:
While Amazon garnered only 20% in round 2 of the challenge, Apple and Alphabet (Google’s parent company) each captured about 40% of the support, with Google/Alphabet taking the slight lead...
