EKIVE – Thoughts and Ideas as Web 2.0 meets the Enterprise: HealthCampDc – looking back and looking forward

A quote from Trenor Williams, MD:

Our newest generation of care givers are incredibly tech savvy but nobody is equipping them with the skills to translate that knowledge so that it can be used to improve care delivery

We all agree: The Washington DC area is at the epicenter of the transformation of Healthcare.

Thanks, Mark Mark Scrimshire for planning a great event.

  1. Trenor's quote is really important. You have written about the bond between a parent and child (here and here for example) and I want to follow up on that. Caregivers and parents know things about their loved one that a doctor does not know — how can systems support the exchange of that knowledge?

  2. Susannah, excellent point, and quotes :).

    I agree with you that tomorrow's electronic health record systems should be able to aggregate a patient's experience for the purpose of relationship enhancement.

    I watch so many physician visits where there are literally seconds available for a doctor to learn who their patient "is" – yet I think this is one of the most important drivers and interests of doctors – they want to know who the person is that they are helping.

    It would be interesting to take a group of patients who blog about their health see what happened if doctors had access to this information before a visit, and compare it to a visit where they did not have access to that information. I think the visit would be different, more meaningful.

    Secure e-mail is a step in that direction, who will write the next generation EHR that will import a patient's RSS feed for use in the clinical encounter (with patient's permission of course),
