1. Another question I constantly get: Can Chinese data be trusted? High Frequency data shop like Baidu or other private data source advertise their data showing similar thing as govt economic data, but more real time = acknowledgement of recent higher quality govt economic data.
2. Around 2014, the central government was extremely concerned that several northern provinces’ reported GDP numbers were overinflated by local officials. In 2016, the LiaoNing province in the north was asked to reduce its reported GDP figure by 22.4%.
3. 2018, after the fourth national economic census, 12 out of 15 northern provinces’ GDP estimates were adjusted lower, while 14 out of 16 southern provinces were adjusted higher. Jilin and HeilongJiang, both northern provinces, have respectively been adjusted down more than 20%.

The United States spends nearly twice as much as the average #OECD country on #healthcare. BUT have you ever wondered how good is the #quality of healthcare in America? (1/10) #ph260720 #healthcarespending #qualityofcare
A 2006 @RANDCorporation research conducted on representative sample of the U.S. population found that on average adults in the United States received only about half of recommended care. Half! Shocking? Disappointed? (2/10) #ph260720 #qualityofcare
That's not all. Quality of care was similar in all 12 of the #metropolitan areas studied. For example, it doesn't matter whether you live in #Boston or #Miami. You're getting the recommended care ONLY HALF the time. Getting frustrated? I already am! 🤬 (3/10) #ph260720 #quality Figure 1. Metropolitan Area...

#Global #ETF (thread): 26 Aug 2021

- 2020 worst perf #sectors making still leading in 2021 $IXG $IXC

- This is helping #oil producing countries with #SaudiArabia & #UAE in top5 #Country ETF YTD performers in USD $KSA $UAE

- #SouthAfrica $EZA still in top30 YTD performers

#EmergingMarkets #ETF seriously lagging #DevelopedMarkets ETF, mostly due to disinvestment from #China.

#SouthAfrica might need a lot of catch up, but $EZA YTD performance in USD (+8.2%) is still ahead of $EEM (-0.95%)

In a few minutes I'll be starting my coverage of @VM_institute CEO Gary Kaplan's #Quality2021 talk about a comprehensive management system built on "people principles".

Here's a bit of background:
A bit more about Gary.

He has held the role of CEO, Virginia Mason Franciscan Health and SVP, CommonSpirit Health since 2021 and was CEO and Chairman, Virginia Mason Health System from 2000-2020. He is also a practicing internal medicine physician.

#Quality2021
We're hitting the ground running here.

Project-based approaches to safety and quality are rarely sustainable

System science offers huge opportunities for improving health and wellbeing.

Word “racism” silenced, actively, by #MedEd #MedTwitter #healthcare#professionalism” & “communication” labels

Saying “racism” offends or “hurts feelings” > actual #BLM deaths

If #professionalism itself is racist -makes sense that word suppressed
@FutureDocs
What @ayshakhoury experienced pushes out & silences many

If the editors of @JAMA_current resist hearing word “structural racism” then they certainly are not publishing papers using that word

Evidence online “#vaccine research” by @Illinois_Alma drives anti-#vaccine #SoMe
=prolong #pandemic
=mortality

@KateClancy’s study: periods in perimenopause “after” vaccine
by 15-minute survey
= bad #data = #misinformation

American feminism has a long history of harming WOC Image
Best practices of #community engaged #research involves
LISTENING
to all important stakeholders

American feminism
frequently believes that it
✅box of the diversity
therefore
no need to listen to anybody else

Women & WOC deserve good, not bad #data.

Had a fun time talking about #leadership in #STEM (at any stage of career), #BlackExcellence #WomenInSTEM #DEI #DiversityandInclusion to a range of students and faculty at @tennesseetech. Thanks for the invitation @JosephCSlater. Look forward to building further on this.
Talked about ways to take on community level leadership roles to develop skills in acquiring funding, managing a budget, team building, managing people, executing.

Know what you are good at and balance the rest with your team. Don’t try to be it all.
Particularly on #Twitter, being overt about terms like #bias or #BLM or #racism can result in blowback. That does not mean what you said was wrong rather others may have insecurity or have work to do. Manage your energy as an advocate. Avoid burnout.

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines

You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

This “fertility” fake news has been going on since December, apparently.

“CDC report found that 62% of nursing home workers are refusing the vaccine”

“...First responders in New Mexico have sued after a county official ordered firefighters, corrections officers and other first responders to receive injections.”

Lawsuits over staff mandates to vaccinate or mask boggle my mind.

This has been brewing for years.

There is SO much anti-science rampant within #healthcare staff more so in those “anti-establishment” on either extreme of political spectrum

Shame & #impostersyndrome = energy waste you canNOT afford (I realized w/ chronic illness & pain). You WILL fall - while rest & recovery are important - sometimes the ball about to drop is too important
Don’t miss your shot

#womeninleadership

BUT do miss a lot of shots. I promise you, it will drain you of less energy to try over and over than to try to be perfect. You will ALWAYS fail to be perfect. You will only sometimes fail to make the shot

#womeninmedicine

Of course there will be these people, (whether in reality or your perception of it - but perception becomes reality).

They have only as much power as YOU give them.

Go to your beginner’s mind. Find that inner child’s courage.

I state, highlight, mark up, not insinuate
Why is someone who likely does not menstruate a sudden expert on #womenshealth to identify a WOC seeking #data #quality & #integrity as the threat...to women?
"Respecting" social science = using respectable methods, not online surveys.
What you see in the tweet and the "study" is ego, defensiveness & flagrant Dunning-Kruger effect for #womenshealth, #menstrualhealth, #COVID19, #vaccine #research.

The best way to demonstrate the value of a field is to be consistent on #quality not

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
Academic language on #online #survey #data:
"systematically assess carelessness in a crowdsourced sample" Denial that quick & dirty is poor #quality is an odd use of time & ineffective. One could better defend one's merit, by delivering #quality per best practices and standards.

LOVE being faculty at @MIT this semester for a class on #dataanalytics & #datascience. I tend to PM my mentees, especially women and #blackexcellence to start to prepare questions to ask. Too often people stay silent. Speak up. Never be embarrassed to show #curiosity.
Listening right now to mid-semester progress reports from teams and am feeling like such a proud #datascience #BigData #bigdataanalytics momma. Bear cubs doing good (well AND good in world)

LOVE that this is a space within @MIT that focuses on #SDoH and #equity.
Literally right now, hearing about a study on #socialmedia chatter as a driver of vaccines hesitancy driven by #Twitter - start postulate "cause/effect" by an incident that happens within days after a vaccine - like ppl automatically assume a death is "caused" by vaccine

Adding the word "experience" to an online survey of biological & immunological mechanisms does not make it anthropology. People who are spreading online rumors about vaccines need to take a hard look at what they are doing. There are valid ways to collect health data. Use them.
There are real, concerning, harmful gaps in knowledge in #womenshealth. Bad data of the GIGO method of data collection for quick and dirty "research" on "vaccine side effect" merely replaces one harm with another harm. searchsoftwarequality.techtarget.com/definition/gar…
If collecting data, overtly on "vaccine" and "side effect" claiming causation from temporal relation
for "after" on something as highly variable as menses, w/ deliberate inclusion of perimenopause (known menstrual variation)
=methodology used by anti-vaxx

If you study #vaccine + #sideeffect... you automatically cross into #healthcare & #medicine regardless of what other label applied

I'm a #vaccineswork #vaccinessavelives #pediatrician & #tweetiatrician careful on #data #quality particularly for women, WOC, POC

This is my lane
Every seeming kind of "not a big deal" thing related to #vaccineswork blows up in our faces like death threats via online mobs against #pediatrician #SciComm

May seem extreme but take a look at the escalation of responses to my identifying "bad #data"

medpagetoday.com/special-report…
We can't wait for yet more false "vaccines affect (THEY DO NOT) fertility" trope to circulate

anyone who is generating data on #vaccine "#sideeffects" needs to think about clean, quality, meaningful data. Junk data: common, but this actually matters

Peak Twitter. Woman w/ stage 4 #endometriosis, #fibroids, latter condition more common in WOC, post 2 gyn surgeries

identifies online #womenshealth #vaccine #survey as poor #data #quality

instead of improving, response ~ "not to attack... but am glad you are not my doctor"
Indeed, I engage patients & families 1:1 without forcing them into fields I've pre-created for my #data collection, based on assumptions I have from personal experience

Respecting women & WOC allows people to not be forced into leading questions or pre-created fields
Measuring needs to be #quality to deliver quality. Your #results will never be better than your #studydesign or collection methods. Wrote this cuz we need less measurement & more humanity. I'm in b-school & everyone sends a new survey every 30 sec..

Utterly irresponsible

An *anthropologist* spreading vaccine hysteria (hate the word but she’s using the uterus to spread vaccine fear) 😱😡

NOT AT ALL controlling for
prior COVID
b4 vaccine

Perimenopausal included?!?

This is why you need GOOD science

Some women trying to “lead” on #womenshealth only serve to harm

No, the way to win in a man’s world is NOT to be as nonsensical as Trump on science

You only harm WOMEN when you fear monger with ZERO understanding of female biology

This is akin to “bleach treatment” science
They literally included perimenopause (pregnancy and lactation) which is KNOWN to have fluctuating hormones and distressing symptoms.

There IS *zero* biological understanding yet claiming to study “immune” response.

OMG.
Women are women’s worst enemies, I am convinced.

When you want to know why
-women & minorities leave medicine
-why research lacks data to serve needs of anyone not white & male
and/or
-why different mortality rates in patients by gender, race, SES

this is why

This is #MedBikini#professionalism” again

#MedTwitter
#MedEd
Is insidious
but highly effective
maintains
-segregation
-different access
-barriers

As women, LGBTQ, minorities, disabled enter or advance in medicine, this professor’s public stance will be cited to mislabel having #ethics as “lacking #professionalism

bioethics.net/2020/07/medbik…
#medbikini is not one article
=attitude of many physicians
=drives this

We saw this happen with @ayshakhoury and @uche_blackstock and so many others. It especially happens at midcareer to WOC, especially black. Also if Muslim, LGBTQ, disabled, #mentalhealth

The lack of empathy, or inability to feel pain the same when someone's skin is black/high malanin and you see them in pain, is literally documented in studies as well as a simply real life disparities.

Please stop with the "empathy" hogwash. We need to address systemic racism.
I *finally* figured out the whole "empathy" silliness and why I feel, increasingly this..

if somoene quotes brene brown at me on "vulnerability" - you think enslaved black women with babies were not vulnerable? Your WHOLE society/culture is designed to not see/feel black pain.
What I figured out is

by touting "empathy"
you can self-appoint yourself as "good"
with "but I am a good person"
or "but she was nice to so and so, therefore"
and deny racism and, more importantly

NOT CHANGE structures or policy
Do NOTHING and feel good about yourself

Those who:
do not touch patients & never have
who maintain no clinical licenses
who feel free of any commitment to #ethics

are put in charge, by administrators, to control, often via fear & shame, clinicians.

This harms on many levels.
It is anti-#safetyculture.
#MedTwitter
We have lost >500,000 Americans to #COVID19 alone. Preventable deaths. These are mostly the marginalized, vulnerable.

Either document measurable work to save lives, or get out of the way and out of budgets that could be used to save lives.
I’ve seen SO much over the years, in the name of #compliance consulting to siphon off money to block &, ultimately, harm.

No this does not save money.
It harms families.
It monetizes coded racism.

There are a multitude of such vendors & consultants.

Yesterday again, a physician engaged me then seemly regretted the reply

deleted non-factual replies

unfortunate that there is such poor training on #Scicomm that folks do not understand that deleting is not protection

better internal judgment & self management = protection
Is it any wonder physicians are unable to navigate increasingly complex healthcare policy or industry pressures if some unable to manage own selves?

“Physician led” slogan requires those issuing that rallying cry to demonstrate trustworthiness - else *you* harm the profession
#globalhealth, #Ruralhealth in America and #FQHC care require #teambasedcare, as does care for children with disabilities - so I am never going to mandate only one type of clinician or be locked into separate cult-like group coercion or shaming.
