There is a lot going on in health care. I regularly feel the need to reorient myself. This morning I reflect back upon my own source of inspiration. In 2001 a group of patients in my community articulated what a redesigned health care system would have to accomplish from their perspective. They simplified the problem/solution considerably. The asked consistently for three things:
- Their own life long, sharable, personal health records and
- Access to tailored knowledge, education, and training to have more self-caring capability.
I will continue to help this emerge in my community, my organization, my state, my country, and beyond.
