#Whatifhc is a Twitter hashtag that stands for “What if healthcare…”
It all started with a simple tweet from Michael Seid, Co-PI of the Collaborative Chronic Care Network (C3N ) project.
On February 9th of this year, researcher Susannah Fox published a blog post describing the subsequent discussions that sprung forth from that simple suggestion. She wrote,
“For over a year I’ve been the accidental manager of a community garden. All I did — I swear — is point out an open plot of land and people started pitching in, planting, asking friends to join them. All of a sudden we’d transformed a bare patch into something beautiful.” She went on to write, “They planted ideas about what health care could be like if we remade it, without regard for money, politics, or any other reality.”
On Friday Sept 27, 2013, we’ll assemble a panel of patients, researchers, technologists, and healthcare providers to explore some of the intriguing ideas and concepts that have come from the Twitter community and the Medicine X audience around the #whatifhc hashtag.
