The front page of Friday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune has coverage of the keynote address I was privileged to deliver on May 5 at the 13th Annual Colloquium of ICSI (Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement) and IHI (Institute for Healthcare Improvement). The article included mention of the Society for Participatory Medicine.
ICSI (pronounced “icksy”) is not known nearly as well as it should be. Formerly a Minnesota-centric organization, attracting about 300 to its conference, this year they drew about 500 nationwide. That’s good, because there was a lot of smart talk.
The speech title they requested (I’m not making this up) was “What e-Patient Dave Wants from Doctors, Hospitals and Health Plans.” Believe me, I had a few things to say. Slides will be posted later this week.
