1) So you get a copy of your medical records & dive in, reading line by line, trying to make sense of your new lung #cancer diagnosis.

“Wait a second, this doesn’t sound right. This is a mistake. I don’t have a history of a heart condition & I don’t smoke cigarettes.

@RichDuszak 1- MT @Aiims1742 “This @katekelly article reads like a paid infomercial for EPIC (in fact, I actually looked for the “This is an advertisement” disclaimer). Would have been nice to have interviewed one or two end users of the chocolate factory product.”

@RichDuszak @Aiims1742 @katekelly 2- Nice digs, clever marketing spin, BUT Epic highly disliked by users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships w #patients, #ptexp, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @JackMurtha hcanews.com/news/ehrs-are-… @BarbaraMcAneny @meggerber

1)Follow up appts, essential to a patient’s health & recovery, are listed as part of the discharge summary. These appts are recommended to be scheduled within 7-10 days. To be best prepared, patients need their records. #healthcare #PtExp #PtSafety #PtEng #EHR #GMDD #medtwitter
2)All records from a patient's hospital admission should be AUTOMATICALLY sent to every listed follow-up physician. Hospitals, you know which drs patients need to see; it’s listed in the discharge plans. This step needs to be embedded in the workflow #PtExp #EHR #interoperability

.@Doug_Lind_Say shares being a late bloomer as a kid. He got sick a junior summer during college, he was told he had mono. His life got worse, not better. #WTFix
He realized he probably had the condition his mother had. He had long had a vision of being a man of destiny. He was in bed 22 hours a day. Walk about 50 ft. Exceeding that he would be worse. #WTFix
The medical community offered @Doug_Lind_Say no home. He looked ahead and knew he could not follow his mother’s health path. A mentor shared if you want to make whatever everyone else makes, then you can, if you want something different you have to do something different. #WTFix
