Jay Parkinson, MD

Jay Parkinson is a physician who lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He was trained at Johns Hopkins in preventive medicine and pediatrics. He realized just what a mess the health care system is, with messy delivery processes and frustrating, expensive reimbursement methods. He figured the whole thing could change for the simpler. So he, along with the team at Myca, is building a platform that enables a new, common-sense practice for all health professionals: it's a social network to connect patients and health experts in-person and online in a totally new kind of practice. Hello Health is the power of Facebook, Amazon, and Zipcar...but brought to health care.

Dr. David Blumenthal, how much would it cost Facebook to sign up all 11 million Healthcare workers in America and let them use their very powerful architecture for healthcare delivery? How about then investing in third parties to build apps on top of this "Facebook for healthcare?"

About two weeks ago, e-patient Dave sent me a link to his blog post about his Google Health information sucked out of the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston. It finally made the Boston Globe this morning.

Obama said he's appropriating $20 Billion dollars to the healthcare industry to encourage widespread adoption of electronic medical records. While this sounds like a phenomenal idea, it's not.
