Last week at the virtual DevDays conference (for the FHIR software standard that I’ve blogged about so much) we held the second Patient Innovator Track. Watch the winning pitch, 10 minutes long, from Morgan Gleason, fresh out of college.

Today in an email thread I realized it’s a decade since the OpenNotes work started, via Tom Delbanco and Jan Walker, and now promoted so brilliantly by Liz Salmi. How great that back then my PCP Danny Sands and I were among the first crew of OpenNotes study participants!
I decided to mark the occasion by creating an /OpenNotes page on my site, listing all the blog posts and articles that have emerged as part of the work.
