I’m always getting surprised by the vast resources out there that not only have I never seen, but nobody else has told me about, even when I write about something closely related. Latest example: this 7 minute video from last year on the need to publish prices of medical services.
(That’s my buddy and four-time cancer patient Jessie Gruman in the preview picture. The clarity of everything she says hides how deep her insights are: she’s a world-changer.)
I’ve blogged a lot about the problems patients face when they try to be responsible for health costs, so in a sense this video doesn’t contain anything new to my readers. BUT, this video existed a year ago, and I wish I’d known about it …. and there’s something about a well produced video that conveys the point effectively.
I could see this being used at the start of many sorts of health meetings.
This bit of awesomeness comes from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, of course. I feel like they’re the Smithsonian of research on improving health – so vast that nobody knows everything that’s in there. So I love it when I find something like this.
(Later I’ll post about the significance of how I found it.) <= Here’s that post.
