Inevitably it is bound to happen: the physician who is in charge of caring for others' medical needs suddenly finds themselves the recipient of care. And almost inevitably, it sensitizes the doctor to what it's like being on the other side of the stethoscope.
Starting this week, I'm going to explore the Open Notes movement, it's outcomes, and application in real life. We'll start with the personal journey through cancer care from Dr. Katherine Lee of St. Luke's Children's Ophthalmology, talk with St. Luke's Chief Information Officer about measurable outcomes from Open Notes, and end with a demo of how to dictate a progress note in front of the patient.
I hope you'll open yourself up to our journey.
