Thanks to IBM and one of its most energetic leaders (and I’d say one of the most energetic leaders in health care), Paul Grundy, MD, a team of colleagues at IBM Healthcare and Life Sciences (noted on the last slide), and Laurie Friedman, the social media-savvy Communications professional at IBM who set the briefing up.
I tweeted some of the comments that Paul Grundy, MD, made about the “why” of Patient Centered Medical Home, which provides great framing for this discussion for a new audience (perhaps one that is less health care savvy), and there was a nice exchange of ideas tossed back and forth, from some my other favorite health care leaders, including Brian Klepper and ePatientDave.
I am mostly fascinated by the new ways that organizations and people are working to get ideas out there, and to connect with a wider group of stakeholders than normal (although if you know the work of PCPCC, they are known for being very inclusive to begin with). What would be next? A call with a chat transcript, or is there any other methodology to bring in this audience and put the comments out there for people who are there and aren’t there to learn? I’m not sure current Webinar-type technology fits this bill. In any event, it’s nice to see the information being put out there and the listening that goes along with it. It’s what Web2.0 is all about.
