|Read the NDHIT panel's final report on Scribd here. |
Some folks on Twitter may remember participating in the dialogue, which ran a very limited engagement, from October 27 to November 3, 2008.
Use TwitterSearch to check for this hashtag: #nationaldialogue, or follow the National Dialogue here: @natldialogue.
The panel posed one vital, seemingly innocuous question to a global community of readers:
"How should we expand the use of information technology and protect personal privacy to improve health care?"
The original website, which engaged many health/medical tweets (myself included) is still accessible here.
24 pages of ideas were submitted.
Some of the
niftiest National Dialogue outputs are the 'Opinion Tracker' word/tag cloud visualizations here, tracking "conversations around the Internet (in forums, communities, blogs and videos) to show what people are thinking and saying about how information technology can be used to improve healthcare while safeguarding privacy."
This final report will be presented to the next administration, Federal Chief Information Officers Council, Office of Management and Budget, General Services Administration, and other "relevant" federal agencies.
I'll be tweeting nuggets of interest from the 68 page report today via @jenmccabegorman.
