Health Hats, the Podcast

Partner with People at the Center End-to-End

November 17, 2019

Despite what anyone tells you, Clinical Decision Support (CDS) is an experiment. It only gets better with use. We, patients and caregivers, should try it, whatever it is, and learn. Learn what helps us make decisions and what doesn’t.

About the Show
Welcome to Health Hats, learning on the journey toward best health. I am Danny van Leeuwen, a two-legged, old, cisgender, white man with privilege, living in a food oasis, who can afford many hats and knows a little about a lot of healthcare and a lot about very little. Most people wear hats one at a time, but I wear them all at once.  I'm the Rosetta Stone of Healthcare. We will listen and learn about what it takes to adjust to life's realities in the awesome circus of healthcare.  Let's make some sense of all this.

Stranger in a Strange Land
I felt like a Hobbit listening to people speaking Klingon. I started a new consulting gig as a patient expert for Clinical Decision Support (CDS) for Chronic Pain Management. The team includes pain management clinicians, research scientists, engineers, and medical information technology folk.
