Of all the social service sectors that are affected by the new trends towards interoperability (hint: all of them), healthcare is the one in which interoperable systems are most visible and have received the most publicity and public attention.

"The more innovative a product—as opposed to mainstream and "known"—the harder it was to get distribution," she explains. In response, she launched The Grommet, a discovery platform that connects customers with inventors' stories and their products, five years ago.
