+Neil Versel great piece, tipped to me by +Steven Rudolph

My background in emergency medicine and prehospital care predisposes me to think this is all achievable. I've watched the evolution of high technology medicine taken to the field for more than 35 years. Dishman's vision is more likely achievable than not.

A few months back, Eric Dishman, chief healthcare strategist and director of health policy for the Intel-GE Care Innovations joint venture, spoke to me about how mobile and wireless healthcare technologies showed promise for what he called “virtual care coordination.” http://mobihealthnews.com/14243/intels-dishman-touts-virtual-care-coordination/

As Dishman explained, “In a world in which there’s not going to be enough doctors and nurses and hospital beds to take care of an increasingly older and sicker population, Intel’s really focused on how do we use disruptive technologies to enable care of people in the home and in the community.” (Watch this video of Dishman’s presentation at USRio+2.0. Dishman takes the stage at about 20:45. USRio+2.0 Panel II: Framing the Challenges )

Medicine's Tech Future - Forbes http://sjd.md/wwsubE Worth reading for +David Shaywitz/@DShaywitz who describes the three phases many of us experience when our passion for innovation runs away with our ration. The balance is tough and right now much technology and salesmanship is devoted to pushing solutions that don't approach real world problem solving.

CMIO and clinical colleagues: It's why we'll have work for a long time.

Telemedicine has so many possibilities, but the key reality identified here is that the social-psychology of the various clinicians participating in care contributes importantly to the value achieved. The same issue pertains to realizing maximum benefit when clinician<-> patient interactions are evaluated.
Jerry Fahrni originally shared:
 
"Being personally acquainted with the telemedicine doctor was important to the critical care nurses both in general and in terms of how likely the nurse was to communicate with the telemedicine staff." - No big surprise here. It's human nature to be more comfortable speaking with people we know. People that have been on a conference call, or video conference, with people they don't know understand what I mean. There's always some awkward points in the conversation secondary to lack of familiarity.

Really interesting. I am a fervent supporter of the use of technology to improve Health Care and connect providers amongst themselves and to patients. In the case of sub-specialties, with the increasing demand for services and the huge deficit, mHealth and telemedicine are the natural and intuitive solutions.We have been doing Telemedicine for trauma (Teletrauma) for several years and since March 2011, mHealth Teletrauma, using iPod Touch devices to connect Trauma surgeons to rural, smaller hospitals. Check TEDx talk "iPod Teletrauma" at TEDxDirigo.com

Story
Tagline
Parent, husband, physician-executive, change agent and techno-geek exploring ideas, connections among them and the music in my days.
Introduction
A change agent and culture transformer throughout my 35-year career as a clinician-educator and service-line leader in Emergency Medicine culminated in the creation of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Maimonides Medical Center where the care of patients and the communities they come from is buttressed by a culture of continuously improving that care. I've led two residency programs, created one and thus contributed to the education of nearly 300 emergency medicine residents among others.

Throughout this work, I've used the tools learned directly from W. Edwards Deming together with the opportunities of technology implementation to lead improvement efforts and move along a path of cultural transformation to physician leadership of caring and improving care together with all involved: community, patient, paramedic, physician, nurse and all who work together.
