A hub of successful startups, the Taiwanese industry is booming due to an influx of successful flourishing businesses.
The home to technology and electronic goods, Taiwan is pushing its way to the forefront of the digital age, with a large number of app companies marking themselves as major players in this thriving scene.
Check Out: Why Startups Fail [Infographic]
One glistening and very recent example is Fandora, a creative startup that has gone on to hire over 2000 employees in the online marketplace. It’s just one of many tales of fortune coming from Asian businesses, yet it’s still easy to fail in such a competitive environment.
Here are a few tips to help you establish yourself as a successful startup company.
FINDING THE RIGHT EMPLOYEES
In the Taiwan job search, the need to find quality employees is an imperative. It’s a region in which the job market is a competitive one, with a highly skilled graduate workforce to choose from. But like the aforementioned Fandora, sourcing employees from the internet can work just as well and open up a global well of talent.
FINDING A NICHE MARKET
No matter where you are in the world, product is what matters most in a business – and without a product or service that fills a niche, there simply isn’t too much of a reason for your business to exist.
It’s a question of need; what do clients need from you? How can you fulfil that need in a unique, interesting and convenient fashion? This should always be the base that any startup worth its salt should jump from.
Just one example of this is iKala, a fledgling company that has hit it big by tapping into the well-known Asian karaoke culture. But instead of being yet another chain of karaoke bars or machines, iKala acts as a sort of Spotify for people who want to know all the words to the song they’re singing along to.
With fully-licensed music, the iKala karaoke app has become a success by finding exactly the product that its niche market was searching for.
SELLING YOUR PRODUCT
After an effective and useful product has been established, the next step is in establishing how to sell it. Because of Taiwan’s blooming startup scene, there are myriad ways to push your product.
IDEAS Show is just one such way. A series of speeches and pitches from starting companies, and with more than 60 businesses on the floor of the expo, IDEAS Show focuses on giving the company with something to prove a chance. But really, the more unique idea a company has to market their product, the better.
In a world in which a thousand and one companies are jostling for your attention, forging your corner in the marketplace can be the difference between a failed startup and a successful one.

In healthcare, patient information security and access is constantly evolving. Governmental actions like the U.S. Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) encourage providers to adopt technology that facilitates sharing health information electronically in an effort to improve healthcare quality through innovations in data sharing technology. The HITECH Act’s emphasis on what it states as “meaningful use,” or the application of available data sharing technology to enforce HIPAA regulations and positively impact patient experience. This definition of meaningful use creates concerns about which software and services to comply with new regulations. Utilizing cloud computing and other mobile access options for record keeping data systems helps fulfill this need and provide compliance with the HITECH Act.
Improved Patient Access
One provision of the HITECH Act is that any facility with an Electronic Health Records system (EHR) must allow patients to request release of their personal record in electronic form. Requests for an electronic version of personal health information (ePHI) over paper fit with public trends of increased use of mobile devices and paperless record keeping. While EHR software now makes allowances for this, not all older software and services have the capability to release their stored information electronically.
Secure mobile computing services are a possible solution. Patient access portals can be provided in user-friendly host systems online. Files can be transferred in a negligible amount of time from the provider’s data system to a patient’s mobile device. Doctor’s offices and hospitals that share hosted space like clouds can have instant third party access to histories at patient request. Most importantly, these services provide Identity and Access Management that allows this swifter, more convenient access without sacrificing security with authentication and encryption methods designed specifically for HIPAA regulations.
Information Sharing with Business Associates
Another change brought by the HITECH Act was more explicit inclusion of third party business associates related to healthcare providers. The Act requires them to maintain HIPAA compliance when dealing with their client’s patients’ information—either personal health information (PHI) or simply personally identifiable information (PII).
With a cloud, the same security measures that cover the healthcare provider in maintaining HIPAA compliance cover the third party—at least as far as information access standards go. This is because both the provider and associates go from building and securing their own sets of files to associates being able to selectively share a single data center. This gives the provider more control over the information available to their third parties, protecting those associates from violations in data maintenance. This is important, considering the HITECH Act requires these business associates to comply with the same violation reporting standards of healthcare providers, as well as administers the same penalties for failure. Healthcare providers who employ systems that work to reduce potential violations have an advantage in contracting vendors.
Additionally, sharing information in this manner provides a more positive patient experience by ensuring more accurate and up-to-date information is available to the vendors when needed, as well as reducing possible errors in information exchange between separate databases.
