As I head over to Moscone Friday morning, I keep thinking about one statistic I heard yesterday as presented by Dr. Sobel, The Permanente Medical Group:
Who provides the largest source of care provision in the US?
You do! 80% of all primary care is self-care. In today's age of medical library's and internet sites and a generation much more comfortable with social networking for information. It's little wonder that increased focus on enabling value-add collaborative capacities must be moved to the forefront.
As I think about what that means to me, I want to be sure my sources of information between myself and my primary provider of care encompass leveraging all points of data, analysis for insight & relavance and getting information that I, as my first tier of care provision, can interpret and react to.
Next post will be written from a plane somewhere enroute back home to Denver. Alot to absorb and filter for sure.
