Thoughts from Canada

After a few delays of various proportions—I am back.  Attended a local meeting last night Health 2.0 Meetup in Washington, DC.  It’s a local group who meet monthly to share—for 5 minute spots—solutions for healthcare.  There are two groups—Health Informatics Pulse or HIP and  Health 2.0 STAT –Web 2.0/Social Media.
