    1. I will add it to our resources page

      1. I don't see it there yet - can I add things, or do we need to appeal to (and then nag) you? (smile)

        I also want to add my Amsterdam 2018 speech, which is embedded in this blog post - it's proven to be a useful tool for explaining what we have in mind.  It compares Kristina Sheridan's manual data-pounding workflow with Mike Morris's "health data spigots" powered by FHIR.

        A tale of two patients: the difference #FHIR hopes to make with free-flowing data

  1. Here is a document from the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) that I recently re-discovered. They list concepts that the ogranization believes (values) and supports (policies); the first set in the pdf below lists AMIA principle statements related to Patient Empowerment.  I think it is a great resource for us to leverage!  (see pages 3&4) 

  2. Not sure if this is the right place for this question but - having not seen (or lost) the invite to last week's meeting, I wonder - do we record them for playback later?

  3. Based on discussions in list-serve and last couple of meetings, I took the liberty of starting a document to describe our position and value. I put it in the form of an FAQ document. Not sure the final form or audience for the document, but for now I figure it can help us clarify our thoughts and talking points.

    Please have a look and add any comments in any form. It is still rough but I will keep iterating until we get it right. Please do add comments or corrections - including suggestions for format and utility of this.  I am looking forward to our next call (in 2 weeks.)  Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it!
