Here's the very first, maiden voyage, debut/premier edition of Healthcare Is HILARIOUS! For the first month, this show will be public - starting in May 2018, with the May 3 ep, it will be for Patreon patrons on Thursdays, available on Soundcloud sometime later, depending on my mood/schedule.
Here are the stories I talk about in this edition:
Why health data is SO valuable [referenced in my remarks about Apple's new "shiny object" for patients to store/share their medical records] - read about my POV in my piece on Medium about "Keep Calm & Sell Your Data"
This edition's Tweetalicious story, "Niam and David and Casey, O My!"
Having a fight with someone can lead to friendship, IF you're willing to talk about it (there's a link to the full Google Hangout vid in this, too, if you're really dedicated to getting ALL of the context)
Niam Yaraghi, Weiguang Wang, Gordon Gao, and Ritu Agarwal's terrific article, How Online Quality Ratings Influence Patients’ Choice of Medical Providers: Controlled Experimental Survey Study on the Journal of Medical Internet Research in March, 2018 - what happens when you listen to smart patients!
