The right idea for #healthcare reform, at least the correct train of thought.
Naturally it's nothing discussed on TV.
The right lines to think along with #prisonreform.
Again, NOT seen on TV.

@Aiims1742 @katekelly Nice digs, clever marketing spin, but EPIC is highly disliked by end users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships with #patients, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @choo_ek @darakass @tgoetz @tmprowell @cardiobrief @DrMJoyner

OK. So there's a piece (no paywall) on @JAMA_current today by Freddy Abnousi (head of #healthcare @facebook), @hmkyale, +@DrJRums "Social Determinants of Health in the Digital Age: Determining the Source Code for Nurture." jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… #cyberwoke /1
Before you think this is any kind of good news, remember that @Facebook has successfully incinerated democracy in several places, in the process turning all of us into meat puppet data cash machines (we don't get the cash) and now ... #cyberwoke /2
In addition to knowing where we are, who we're with, what we like, and what we think, they want our health data? How big of a FUCK NO, NO WAY, OMFG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EVERLOVIN' MIND will we have to raise to kill this? #cyberwoke /3

This doctor reprogrammed software typically used for adult #cardiology patients to examine the fetal heart. Now GE #Healthcare’s #ultrasound systems have the FIRST tool to simultaneously examine size, shape, and function of the fetal heart.

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

A federal judge ruled the #AffordableCareAct--also known as #ACA & #Obamacare--unconstitutional because #GOPTaxBill removed the mandate.
I've written about ACA since it was devised in 2009 & signed in 2010. Here is a thread📌on what the law does & how it impacts you:
1/
Many Americans are confused about what the #ACA is--and this includes Trump and his #HHS Sect #AlexAzar. A vast array of complex #healthcare statutes are covered under the #AffordableCareAct (also known as #ACA & #Obamacare). So here's a primer to inform you on all points.
2/
The #AffordableCareAct is the comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010 (sometimes known as #ACA or #Obamacare). The #ACA is NOT insurance. It is a LAW that stipulates, in part, what insurance companies provide in their #healthcare plans.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter

While you're focused on a holiday surprise from #Mueller, the president of the United States and his lame duck Speaker have officially been working toward eviscerating the #ACA before #NancyPelosi steps in to save everyone's #healthcare.

Please call your reps & tell them NO.
1/
I'm seriously ill--17M of us have #cancer; 131M have other chronic illnesses. This concerns me & you & people you love.
Like everything else, it's underhanded and under-the-radar.

New insurance guidelines would undermine rules of the #AffordableCareAct

2/
"The Trump administration is urging states to tear down pillars of #AffordableCareAct, demolishing a basic rule that federal insurance subsidies can be used only by people buying health plans in marketplaces created under the law."

They want to take the #healthcare you need.

So all of us in the #resistance are giving ourselves a big pat on the back for the #BlueWave. After all, we took 40 seats and soon @TeamPelosi will be House Speaker

Great job! We think. After two long years we can finally take it easy.

NOT. SO. FAST.

<Thread>
Yes, it was wonderful to see those Democratic candidates win. And nice to see our effort rewarded.

With control of the House, we now have a Constitutional check on the president PLUS we control more governorships and state legislatures

But there’s still a TON of work to do.
As the past few days have shown, we still have a corrupt president: compromised by Russia, beholden to Saudi Arabia, unwilling to acknowledge basic facts about climate change and seemingly unconcerned about the sanctity of human life.

A thread about tech's role in #healthcare transformation.

Disclaimer 1: This does not apply to specific tech developed for critical, urgent, and life saving needs where the recipient has little-to-no input.
Healthcare is a system. Every system has a series of steps, levers, cogs...call it what you want. I prefer levers.

Certain levers cause or exert more force on the system than others. There are hierarchy & collateral considerations for the levers.
The premise will outline here that healthcare is a thinking problem, not a tech problem.

Let's dive into system levers available for healthcare transformation, from most influential to least on change.

One week ago, #thisisourlane exploded on Twitter. At the request of may, here's a tweetatorial to address some of the most common questions and answers about the epidemic of #gunviolence - why it matters to docs - and what we can do about it:
***Q1: What are the patterns of #gunviolence injury and death in the US? ***

A: 100 people die and 200 are injured each day across the US. Most deaths (~2/3) are suicide; these are mostly white middle-aged men from rural areas.
Approximately 30% are homicides: mostly young minority men from inner cities. The rest are accidental and mass shootings.

#DomesticViolence deaths from firearm injury are estimated at ~50/month.

And firearm injury is the 2nd leading cause of death for American youth.

It's #ElectionEve and I want to tell you why I #vote.
My parents were Socialists.
They grew up dirt poor.
They believed in creating change in their lifetimes.
They raised us to believe the same.
When we were small, they were Civil Rights workers.
My dad was a Freedom Rider.
1/
Our early childhood was framed within & by the #CRM.
My mother wasn't well, but she did everything she knew how, to ensure that black Americans had the right to vote, a right she cherished because her mother had been a baby #suffragist and had fought for that right for women.
2/
The fallout for my parents was minor compared to their black friends, but it was violent and hate-strewn and they worried about their children being hurt.

And we were hurt. I got beaten up a lot because then as now I refused silence. I got in a lot of fist fights.

SO IMAGINE THIS.....
You've battled cancer 3x. U worked for 35 yrs to get a house, car, a nice savings. Sure u have great insurance, but still worked hard to keep up w/healthcare costs. Paid off 85K of medical debt. Yea, right? U did everything right. U owned ur own business'
Paid double in premiums to SSI (Insurance program for self employed = SSD) than ur hubby did in his contributions to his SSD fund. Worked side jobs & pd into SSD. Then u get sick due to complications of chemo. U spend 6 1/2 YRS fighting 4 ur life. Living in extreme pain everyday.
42 surgeries. U win ur battle, but u will forever live in pain & need surgeries every 3 or 4 yrs. Then u find out ur losing EVERYTHING. UR home, cars, savings, ur pets (because u can't find a place that wants u let alone pets!). U embark on 3 1/2 yr battle to get declared legally

This week @BBCTwo aired a 1 hr program on #AI for #healthcare,
bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b…
produced @teamWingspan @ArchieBaron, moderated by @FryRsquared, & brought to my attention by @pearsekeane. It didn't show in the US, so I am going to review a few key points here
First, the #AI hype from @babylonhealth, a symptom checker, which is a major focus of the documentary. A quote from their CEO:
[No you're not.]
Remember the paper the company posted on their website claiming their #AI it outperformed 7 doctors (and other claims). Well apparently that was submitted to peer-review @TheLancet and here is the preview:

Progressive policies make sense for Chinese Americans and it's why the majority of our community supports commonsense proposals on issues like immigration, health care, the environment, and racial justice. 1/5
On #immigration, Chinese Americans have a history of benefiting from reforms that allowed our communities to grow and be part of the American story. Through immigration reform, we have been able to reunite families and contribute to the U.S. 2/5 chineseprogressive.com/immigration-is…
On #healthcare, Chinese Americans support programs that expand access and provide quality health outcomes. The ACA reduced the number of uninsured Chinese Americans by half and that's one reason why it's so popular in our community. 3/5 chineseprogressive.com/health-issue/
