In a disaster, medical personnel often have to rely on the memory of patients, family members, and friends to recall complex plans for medical care.

#personalhealthrecord  can change that.
It should be. Most people evacuate a dangerous environment without any thought to medical records, which can complicate treatment when displaced.

I am hosting a conversation with Niam Yaraghi (Center for Technology Innovation, The Brookings Institution) and Casey Quinlan (Mighty Casey Media) following their interesting back-and-forth online on the question of whether and how patient reviews of physicians can add value. We will consider the old saw that healthcare is unique and can't be dealt with in the same way as other products and services, and explore productive ways forward around recognizing the patient voice in evaluating health care providers.

Please read Niam's and Casey's posts before tuning in: Niam: http://j.mp/1G7aXCs Casey: http://j.mp/1G7aKz0 - and follow up posts from Niam: http://j.mp/1G7bUuB Casey: http://j.mp/1LhPWvj

You should follow all three of us on Twitter:@healthblawg, @niamyaraghi and @mightycasey. 

See you on the 24th. Please come prepared to join the conversation by posting comments and questions on the feed. We will address them as time permits. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by David Harlow. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Excerpt from post in The Health Care Blog:

"Blocking data kills

"Collecting clinical data into a single, usable platform is not just a “nice to have.” It is essential for improving the quality of healthcare delivered in this country. Improving communication and information-sharing can reduce patient injuries from medical errors by 30 percent. This is staggering, given that as many as 440,000 people die in hospitals each year as the result of preventable medical errors, according to the Journal of Patient Safety."

==

FreeOurHealthRecords allows an individual to collect health records from multiple providers and have them integrated and normalized in an easy-to-use format. (Full EHR data, not jsut PHR / portal info.) Records can then be used productively and may be shared (it's up to the individual). And - it's free.

Home Care Services for the Memory Impaired
 
‪#‎Caring‬ for the ‪#‎Alzhemier‬ or ‪#‎dementia‬ patient is most often a 24 hour/7day per week job. These family members must be monitored for safety, nutrition, activity, and personal ‪#‎care‬. Caring for a loved one living with a memory disorder can be challenging.

An update on the "don't Yelp doctors" #sh^tstorm  this week, including a live conversation (via HOA) next Wednesday. Join the party!
I'm willing to talk to anyone to move the needle on health care system transformation, so I called the number on the guy's bio. He answered.

How do you feel about words like "compliance" and "adherence"? What do you think of the language of medication taking? Join the conversation!

Hi Cathleen, rarely Google but felt compelled to reply since we are twitter friends.   I am sincerely afraid compliance has in some cases turned to bullying, force tactics, refusing to honor patient's rights, self-determination or choice. 

I have some very personal stories of all these things both as a nurse, patient, and calls from friends and community.  Some unbelievable and horrifying stuff.  

What gives HC implied power and sense of omnipotent control.  At times I think Medicine has become Martial Law with the corporations making the decisions and clinicians are simply the puppets.  

 Are patients only integers on a spreadsheet.  Perhaps CMS knows, instead of hiring clinicians they brought in the worlds top mathematicians to determine changes to algorithms to control patient care.  

Society tends to rely on systems to make change.  Systems simply dehumanize, capitalize and remove compassion and feeling.  We need remember compliance best met when the patient educated, part of team and is motivated to change.  Force creates contention.  

Choice, Respect, Dignity.  As a Crisis RN, Going into bizarre crisis situations I found one thing always was able to get the situation under control no matter what type of people dealing with.  Professionalism and respect.  People will act like we treat them.  

Healthcare appears to be having a nervous breakdown at times.  Bullying, even blackmail and lies.  Don't get me wrong there are a few good people out there.  

Here I cannot stress enough patients should self-educate, research and have a strong dose of self-advocacy.  I can tell at least three recent stories that it meant life or death.  

I am one of   #TheWalkingGallery   members, we are known as rebels, changemakers, shakers, and disrupters.  We tell true stories and wear them on our backs too.  Someone must speak, someone must stand for the good of humanity and the future of our children.  Someone must speak for those who can't.  

Compliance, Adherence ....and Healthcare needs to lose the word Mandatory.  

I prefer:
educate, model, respect, dignity, self-determination and choice instead of force

 Why not giving them a sense of responsibility, challenges, goals, let them plan and both the healthcare team and patient affirm success.  Appears healthcare would be wise to read some of the old classics, starting with Norman Vincent Peale and others.    

Have we in healthcare become taskmasters forcing solutions or are we leaders who through our influence, care, and direction cause people (yes patients are people with hearts, souls and the ability to think). True leaders influence those they come in contact with to want to comply. 

When healthcare removes right to self determination, choice and refuses to be honest and deletes the patient and family from the care plan team, when they treat them disrespectfully, act as though they are problems, do not take time, listen or explain. It is not even intelligent to expect that human beings treated this way would want to comply.  

We must return compassion, care, respect, honesty, and empathy to the patient care arena or continue to watch problems arise.  

______________________________________________________________________

Want my compliance, then first earn my respect.  Want me to return surveys with good satisfaction scores, then treat me with empathy and concern, after all if I am a patient I have come to you at less than my best, I am sick hurting and frightened.  I may have cancer and be dying or have a sick child, I may have an elderly parent that needs extra attention, or I may need help in a crisis.

 I usually will do what you ask, if you explain, and give me a chance and take a minute or two to listen to me explain a thing or two.  I wouldn't be here if I didn't want help.  

Please let me be part of the team not your subject.  Let's work together to then you have me as a compliant life-long patient.  

The right to refuse is still a fundamental right of the patient.  

Thank you and #MediVisor   for your work.  Inspiring change!

Best,  Camea
