It is the intersection between business and technology in a large medical system. I don’t know how I ended up here. I didn’t mean to. I wonder if people smarter and more experienced than I, meant for me to be here. I wonder if they are trying to teach me something unpleasant about the world. They did.
Here’s my relationship with the medical system and healthcare, to the best that I understand it. I get frustrated. I can step into that fire for a period of time in order to fix this or understand that, but then I need to step back. I do the same with blood sugar management. I hit it real hard, do a ton of data collection, and stabilize system behavior so that I can float for 2 months on that sprint of labor that set everything up for success.
Flu has been a long sprint, somewhat arduous in nature. 2nd shot today. I want to step back and put separation between me and healthcare concerns. Its almost a psychological imperative. I find the things that people say, deeply troubling. I don’t want to be troubled about healthcare like that now. I’m not up to it. Healthcare culture is so deeply troubled.
