Michele Longabaugh Introduction by Lisa Fields

This past Thursday March 27, 2014 Healthcare Leader #HCLDR was honored when we were given the opportunity to partner with @heydavemathews@erikreinertsen@paparish and other healthcare leaders from the Health Innovation Lab.  This collaboration all began with a few tweets explaining our vision of a patient not only leading a Grand Rounds but given the opportunity to also be LIVE tweeted.
Dave Mathews a physician-scientist in training at Emory University School of Medicine began to work on this idea almost immediately. Michele Longabaugh (@CrazyAssCancer) and I were honored and amazed by how quickly and efficiently Dave began to make this vision a reality. The Health Innovation Lab designed a remarkable Future Innovation Summit and highlighted Michele in a combined tweet chat with #HCLDR. HIL Presents: Michele Longabaugh.

It was exciting and gratifying to see so many people both from #HCLDR and #HIL…

Black-Box Detector Joining Malaysia Jet Search


The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) announced on Sunday it’s dispatching a warship with an airplane-black-box detector to aid in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. That ship sets sail after objects fished out of the Indian Ocean on Saturday were determined to be unrelated to the missing aircraft.

Australian black-box-detector ship Ocean Shield will take up to four days to reach the Flight 370 search zone. That zone is now 1,850 kilometers (1,150 miles) to the west of Australia, reports the Associated Press.

The Boeing 777’s black box, if located, could provide investigators with valuable insight into what caused the aircraft to veer far off course before vanishing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board three weeks ago.

Meanwhile, objects retrieved from the Indian Ocean and initially suspected to be from the missing flight were determined to be “fishing equipment and other…

New objects sighted as MH370 search shifts dramatically

FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV | News, Weather, Sports

(CNN) — Forget all those satellite photos showing promising patches of debris. The search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has moved again.

In a stunning turn, Australian authorities announced Friday that they were abandoning the remote patch of Indian Ocean where search crews had spent more than a week looking for the plane. A new analysis of satellite data showed the plane could not have flown that far south, they said.

“We have moved on from those search areas,” said John Young, general manager of emergency response for the Australian maritime authority.

The new zone is 680 miles (about 1,100 kilometers) to the northeast, closer to the Australian coast.

A New Zealand air force surveillance plane flying over the new search area spotted unidentified objects floating in the water and was returning to its base in Perth, Australia, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said on Twitter.

The agency was…

Calorie Intake: The Last Mile for Truly Connected Health

The cHealth Blog

This triggered an alarm as I felt like I was already on the high end of what I considered an acceptable weight for me.  At the same time, I recently got to know Samir Damani and his company, MD Revolution.  Samir has taught me, among other things, that weight is not as important as some less consumer-friendly measures such as VO2, metabolic rate and visceral fat.  As I became familiar with the MD Revolution team and their approach, the offering intrigued me.  It is a tour-de-force that integrates a number of consumer apps and devices as inputs (Withings, Fitbit, MyFitnessPal and others) with a high-touch coaching component that involves nurses, dietitians and exercise coaches.


Their results so far have been impressive (I should note that MD Revolution is in late stage discussions to trial their product in the Boston market in collaboration with the Center for Connected…

Nepal is an agrarian economy – there is a huge potential. But how far has the government or the private sector in the country catered to the farmers? A basic need for a farmer is information about farming – what to grow, how to grow, what are the developments in farming techniques, what are the government policies, so on and so forth. The lack of such information about farming techniques, trends and related issues among farmers, traders and entrepreneurs has led to an inefficient industry.
