Yesterday saw the official launch of HealthTrain, the Open Healthcare Manifesto. Dmitriy Kruglyak has been working on this for some time with a large group of collaborators, and I have joined several others to sign on. The manifesto lays down some principles for how the new media of social networks and open access to publishing technology (e.g. blogging) ought to be used within health care. It’s an interesting and common sense filled set of guidelines which I hope will give the concept of “open healthcare” some visibility and some direction.
So instead of perusing my blog today, I hope that instead you’ll read the manifesto (It’s only about 12 pages).
