Welcome to Outcome Improvement! Everyone has a lot on their minds. The pace of life continues to increase and things have gotten more and more complicated. We first attempted to get this blog started on June 14, 2009. Unfortunately, other things got in our way and we were never able to follow through until now.
A lot has happened since then. We have found that personal management and recordkeepting have become especially important to living a successful life. Healthcare offers many opportunities for improving cost-effectiveness and quality of life. However, since we have recently started another blog dedicated to Personal Health Records at http://lifelongphr.com/blog, we will concentrate on broader aspects of outcome improvement in this forum.
We continually find challenges addressing technologies and products that get to market before they are ready. However, we have found that with a little mentoring, a reasoned, incremental approach will deliver positive results for those who otherwise can become veru frustrated. It is sad to see people abandon and miss out on something that would gradually deliver value and exceed expectations.
If you are afraid to tackle something without a support group, please look for one in us. You are invited to use this as an opportunity to make connections with others, share information and better address challenges faced with technology and the change that comes with it. Expect to find new ideas and insights, lessons and experiences, viewpoints and suggestions that are relevant. What you contribute will help others as well.
As we get started, we are especially interested in hearing what you are thinking including needs, interests and concerns.
Thank you for your interest and participation.
