Photo Friday: Scott and Holly embrace paper, sometimes

Scott and Holly

This week’s photograph is of two Health 2.0 (and other numbers) leaders, Scott Shreeve, MD from Crossover Healthcare (on Twitter as scottshreeve), and Holly Potter, the Vice President of Public Relations, National Media and Stakeholder Management (on Twitter as htpotter) for Kaiser Permanente. The moment was our admiration of Holly’s planning system, which uses paper (as does mine), at this week’s The World Healthcare Innovation and Technology Congress, in Washington, DC.

Scott participated in the unveiling of CurrentHealth at WHIT, and Holly’s team unveiled, a site that integrates the work and vision of Kaiser Permanente’s technological transformation for its members.

Paper is a very empowering tool in the era of Health Information Technology, which is one of the reasons I took this photo. Businessweek cites the paper after visit summaries as part of the “cutting edge of health care.” I agree. That link and others about the after visit summary are here.
