Seattle has the world’s biggest Rotary Club – a lot of sharp, focused Seattle business people. Very different from my usual talk to a medical conference … I’m talkin’ to these people as patients and family members! So the content is different, and some is new this week.
Here’s the video (32 minutes):
Two notes about the video:
- The fonts didn’t upload correctly so some of the layouts overflowed. (30 years into desktop publishing and they still can’t make it work reliably!) An accurate PDF of the slides is on Slideshare.
- Around 31 minutes I say that I’ll post my call to action online: our society needs mid-level managers who know how to create a team and produce a result! They’re on slides 50-56.
As promised, links to material cited in the talk:
- Society for Participatory Medicine (known as SPM, S4PM)
- My informal list of patient communities on this site. Additions welcome.
- “Half of everyone who’s ever been 65 is alive today” – column by surgeon Jon White in General Surgery News, January 2013
- The “beehive graphic” showing the incredible looming increase in 85+ population, shown around 30:40:
- Movement artist Regina Holliday’s blog and the Walking Gallery page on Facebook (updated when time allows … she’s a single mom/widow and a really good storytelling keynote speaker; she brings her stuff and paints you a painting of what she hears in your event!)
- The Wall Street Journal front-page article by Laura Landro on how big-name health systems are starting to ask patients to check their record for mistakes. (Have you checked yours??)
- A post from a live event two years ago documenting that health IT people themselves generally haven’t checked their own charts, and of those who have, most have found mistakes … same as the WSJ piece two years later
- The BMJ’s Own Patient Journey – their editorial announcing their patient advisory panel etc, and my post about it on the SPM blog
- My TEDx Talk, including the e-Patient Rap by Keith Boone (@Motorcycle_Guy on Twitter). I don’t know how, but the talk has >400,000 views and volunteers have added subtitles in 26 languages … it must be a global movement!
- Ross Martin’s music video “Gimme My DaM Data” He spells it “DaM” … Data About Me … because he’s more polite than I am!
Finally, Rotary members – if you want a highly effective (but not cheap) speaker for your event, see my videos page, media page, and contact page. Hamilton will tell you, I obsess about audience relevance, then I deliver focused results.
