Note to email subscribers: I’m not sure which of today’s posts you’ll get first. If you haven’t seen today’s other post, about my July Blue Button speech, please see it below. It’s an important declaration about the future of health IT.
Last weekend I started something I hope to continue: a weekly post summarizing things I’ve written on other blogs. I’m doing this to keep in touch with subscribers here, as I reach out through other channels.
- The British Medical Journal’s blog invited a post about Morgan Gleason, the 15 year old whose two minute YouTube went viral the week before: 15 year old’s video raises the question—who gets to say what “patient centred” is? That’s a physician audience, so I focused on the social media discussion among physicians that arose around Morgan’s video.
- On e-patients.net: A neurosurgeon confronts his mortality: lessons in statistics and living while you can – about a New York Times op-ed, from a surgical resident with a grim diagnosis who wanted more certainty than science can give him. A must-read for people facing a tough diagnosis.
Also on this site in the past week:
- Video of my AMIA keynote (November)
