I have convinced my good friend and partner in healthcare reform, Dr. Cari Oliver, to start a blog.
She will now be talking about her ideas regarding patient engagement/empowerment/involvement/safety at docoliver.com
Whenever someone asks me “how do you do it” for blogging, I always tell that the secret is to have something to say about something specific.
For instance, here on FredTrotter.com you will get a steady stream of information about Open Source Software in Healthcare, and all things related to it. Thats a pretty broad brush that lets me talk about politics, healthcare, and healthcare IT along with Open Source in Healthcare. My readers know that if they visit or subscribe to my feed, they will generally get information about what is going on in the FOSS Healthcare world, with a generous dose of helpful bias.
At DocOliver.com you can expect to hear about how a patient -should- engage in their own healthcare, and -how- they can use Health Information tools to do it. If I had written the tagline of Doctor Olivers site, it would be “Making PHRs actually do something useful for you”, but she tends be a little more disciplined and careful with her prose than I am.
