On Friday March 4th, 2011 I attended a roundtable event organized by the Institute for Federal HealthCare and Lifetime Health Diary. The topic -Patient Centered Health Care. The title:
"The Healthcare IT Puzzle: Something is Missing... Oh, Yes, The Patient!"
Thankfully the invitation only event had invited some great patient advocates such as Amy Tendrich of DiabetesMine, Dave deBronkart aka @ePatientDave and Regina Holliday (@ReginaHolliday).
While there was no Wi-Fi available at yet another Health care oriented event and Clearwire 4G service wasn't penetrating the building we were able to get cell phone access. This meant that a number of us at the event were tweeting from our phones.
Since Twitter tends to forget Tweets after about a week I thought I would capture the tweets and include them in a post here. If you want to do your own search on Twitter we used the hashtag #hcrt for the session.
If you find the conversation interesting you should plan to attend a HealthCamp event and continue the conversation. It looks like a number of us will be going to HealthCamp San Diego on March 20th, the day before the Health 2.0 Spring Fling.
For other insights check out Ted Eytan's blog. Ted captured some great photos that demonstrate clearly how the patient changes everything.
Here are the tweets as of March 8th, presented in reverse order. Newest tweets first.
