Wellth IT: Syndicate and analyze data to tackle social determinants of health

The U.S spends far more per capita on health care than other countries. Yet experts estimate 75 percent of the factors that undermine population health are not medical. Instead, this is shaped by the social determinants of health – or the socioeconomic, behavioral and environmental conditions of where we are born, live, learn, work and play. While improvements in Health Information Technology and adoption of Electronic ...more »

A Simple Patient-Activated Tool Saves Lives, Cuts Costs, Improves Patient Satsfaction

To err is human, and over 100,000 people die each year in U.S. hospitals from provider errors. Patients have been culturally excluded in our “doctor-knows-best” society, limiting the most important constant and voice, the patient or their primary advocate. A patient-level, multi-functional turnkey intervention can empower them to help in this role…while being happier and safer in the process. The Patient Pod is a multi-tool ...more »

Open Digital Medicine - A Privacy Policy Template

Medicine is becoming digital. Must it also become closed and licensed as a result? Our project will develop a model privacy policy for apps and websites committed to open medicine and sharing of patient data. Most medicine is on paper and still open. It’s peer-reviewable, modifiable by anyone and can be taught and practiced without buying a license. As EHRs, PHRs, apps and web services absorb and then extend medical ...more »

Patient Checklists: A radical yet simple solution

As modern-day consumers of healthcare, patients today can access large amounts of health information. Yet, are they asking the right questions? An asthma patient may ask, “what are the side effects of that inhaler.” Shouldn’t they ask, “I know that a fast heart rate may occur. How fast is too fast?” A patient may have heard that some inhalers need to be taken daily to prevent symptoms. Shouldn’t they ask, “how long will ...more »

Personal stories: a new (old) way to promote patient-centered care for chronic illness

For over three years, The Story Collider has been finding personal stories that transform the way the public thinks about science and scientists. Now we're hoping to do the same for the way doctors think about their patients. By 2020, 157 million Americans will be affected by chronic illness. As this number grows, it becomes more and more crucial for health care professionals to be able to understand and effectively treat ...more »

My Journey My Choices: Become an Ambassador for Your Own Health

In the United States, primary care physicians have, on average, less than 45 minutes per year to spend with each of their patients. General practitioners are also expected to keep current on dozens of complicated diseases in the “free time” that they have when not seeing patients or completing administrative tasks. It’s an impossible task. General practitioners cannot know everything about every disease; even if they ...more »

Simple patient-activated tool saves lives, cuts costs & improves patient satisfaction

The hospital patient’s care invariably suffers from gaps and glitches during hand-offs, shift changes, etc. The one constant is the patient (and/or advocate). But patients are not systematically equipped as “connectors” through care transitions. A per-patient, multi-functional turnkey intervention can empower them to help in this role...while being happier and safer in the process. The Patient Pod is a multi-tool ...more »

Relationship-based care 2.0: The Maternity Neighborhood

What if the medical chart, instead of being just the clinician’s documentation record, was something the clinician and the patient owned and honed collaboratively? What if “personalized medicine” tapped the most underutilized resource for personalizing care: relationships? Private Practice is building on established success of our shared electronic health record for maternity care to launch the Maternity Neighborhood, ...more »
