A hospital environment is a scary and strange place, but it is far more scary if you do not know what is going on. I went to a small health 2.0 meeting on May 27th 2009. The people attending that meeting asked me to focus on what was the worst thing that had happened through this entire tragedy.
I told them the worst thing we experienced was lack of access to my husband’s data.
