Throughout the year I’ve met people online and offline who calibrate by thinking, push me further and encourage me to strive for more. They are too numerous to mention, but I would like to highlight two events that will forge re-calibrated directions for me in 2015 and beyond.

Stanford Medicine X

Throughout the year I’ve met people online and offline who calibrate by thinking, push me further and encourage me to strive for more. They are too numerous to mention, but I would like to highlight two events that will forge re-calibrated directions for me in 2015 and beyond.

Stanford Medicine X

Sharing the stage with @PamRessler @SusannahFox @MeredithGould  at Stanford Medicine X in September was certainly a highlight of 2014 for me. Correction! Actually preparing to share the stage was the part that inspired recalibration. Flipping the panel is definitely a practice that I will repeat for my presentations in 2015. Gathering thoughts from your network not only helps you take a litmus test of what your audience already knows and what they want to learn, it also illuminates why they want to hear it from you.

#hcsmca Future Planning

It would be easy to presume that a community leader leads a community. But if your community’s foundation is built on shared ownership then, well, sometimes you get shown where you need to lead. Thanks to Pat Rich (@cmaer), who poked the #hcsmca community, we now proudly boast a new Vision and Mission.

It’s not easy to wrangle consensus virtually, but Shirley Williams (@williampearl) did it to get us this far. Now she working with a core team and the community to build a road map for more #hcsmca social collaboration in 2015. Exciting times ahead.

Our Vision

To drive social collaboration for better health and health care.
