Thanks for your wonderful and thoughtful reviews. Your own work and writings helped form what few insights I may have provided to the Health Affairs piece.

Yes, I trained as a physician and practiced in an academic settings for many years, but over the past decade my wife and I have very much been patients (with an upper case "P") and on the receiving end of health care delivery. I value the skills of the physicians who provide specialized care for my family, but I so wish I could just get my routine labs at my pharmacy, pay with my health savings account card, save the results to a PHR, view the results through my bank portal, and discuss with a nurse practitioner or health coach.

In my own view, truly great health care is going to take ALL of us caring for ONE ANOTHER in both personal and professional capacities.

Thanks for your great insights...as always.
