WendySwanberg, Project HealthDesign Communications Project Assistant
Last week, national program director Patti Brennan held a briefing in Washington, DC, to speak with policy makers about the many insights that have emerged from the work of Project HealthDesign. While it's nearly impossible to summarize the findings of a project that's been evolving for nearly a decade, Patti does a beautiful job in this brief video.
We're at an important juncture in the future of healthcare and health technology, and a critical point for policymakers to attend to the knowledge gained by in-depth research like that conducted by Project HealthDesign's project teams. Patti stresses four key considerations:
The EHR is not enough
We need safe and trustable ways to manage clinically-generated data and patient-generated data
We need practice-permissive policies that support the use of patient-generated data and enable inter-visit care actions
We need to expand the concepts of confidentiality and privacy to better fit the data landscape
These ideas have been germinated over the Project's duration, and we've chronicled much of their history on our website. In the months ahead,we invite you to explore the rich content on our website, and to keep the conversation going!
