As I mentioned recently, I was privileged to attend ‘Healthcare Reform: Putting Patients First,’ hosted by Dr. Val Jones of getbetterhealth.com. Here is a link to the video produced at the conference at The National Press Club, in Washington, DC.

The meeting featured excellent thinkers and bloggers such as Dr. Kevin Pho  https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/,  Dr. Rich  of https://covertrationingblog.com/, Kim,  RN of Emergiblog, www.emergiblog.com,  and Dr. Wes Fisher of Dr. Wes; https://drwes.blogspot.com/

Take the time to watch it. Some excellent insights and ideas are presented.

Yes, it is slanted to the right. Most of those in attendance, though not all, are a little itchy about having too much government in ‘our bidness.’

But please don’t accuse me of inappropriate self-interest. Everyone (and I do mean everyone) is motivated by self-interest to one degree or another. Patients are, insurers are, doctors and nurses are, hospital administrators are and you can bet your last bottle of Lortab, politicians are!

So, enjoy! I think you’ll learn something. By the way, you won’t see me. I was off to stage left in the Twitter gallery, typing away furiously until my computer decided to take a siesta from a dead battery.

Good night!  ‘And flights of angels sing thee to thy sleep!’
