Thank you so much, this is very exciting! I'm looking forward to my call with Joanna and Shane, I will also start the Impact story tonight. 




Thanks for the link, I'll take a look!



Great feedback! I really hope you were able to get the support and care you needed for your mom. That's the big motivation for my idea. Regarding your comments:
1) ideally the guide could be transferable to any market. I'm in love with the idea of creating a procedure manual to include the roadmap, linking to service providers,  the technical pieces,  and sponsors then making the whole process open source or linked to a central website. 

2) Making the guide available in both formats is really important to me because I've heard it from multiple people,  but I agree that digital formats give you more options.

Connectivity of care is one of my passions for patient centered healthcare. Your idea is great, it would be quite beyond my technical expertise and I would have concerns about HIPPA requirements, but I think care providers should be in communication and it should be simple.  

I think either way the guide would need to be connected with multiple service providers,  including the local government,  and marketed through PSAs, community outreach, and education. 

If you think of other feedback or ideas please be in touch.
