Let's change the Face of health care

  1. 1. Medical Advocacy Mural Project<br />Let’s Change the Face of Health Care<br />
  2. 2. Do you know this face?<br /> Do you know this name?<br />He is not the patient in room 6218<br />He is not “unfortunate ym 39yrs old..”<br />He is Frederick Allen Holliday II, Phd.<br />He was a loving husband, a devoted father,<br />A professor of film studies and a great friend.<br />He was hospitalized for 79 days with a <br />diagnosis of Kidney Cancer.<br />
  3. 3. Do you know this face?<br /> Do you know this name?<br />She is not “the wife in room unhappy with progress”<br />She is not “little miss A-type personality”<br />She is Regina Holliday. I paint myself in the picture.<br />I am loving mother, an artist and I was the wife to a great man.<br />On May 30th 2009 I placed my first mural <br />In an attempt to change the face of healthcare<br />
  4. 4. This is my husband’s medical record.<br />I was told it would cost <br />73 Cents per page <br />and I would have to wait 21 days to get a copy<br />I eventually got a copy, and despite its many errors, it was instrumental in guiding Fred’s care.<br />I used it to create an easy to understand “facesheet.” <br />
  5. 5. Then I painted it on a wall in a local Deli for all of our neighbors to see…<br />Next, my new friends in the world of Health 2.0 began blogging.<br />
  6. 6. After spending his last six days at home, Fred died on June 17th 2009.<br />On June 23rd, I began painting 73 Cents.<br />
  7. 7. Painting Advocacy meets <br />Social Media<br />
  8. 8. “Shouldn’t Art stick to what it does best- the delivery of pleasure? <br />And forget about being a Paintbrush warrior. <br />Or, is it when the bombs are dropping we find out what art is really for?”<br />-Power of Art by Simon Schama<br />I painted 73 Cents from June 23rd to September 30th 2009. It is still there today, at 5001 Connecticut Ave. in Washington, DC. It is a monument to Fred and patients everywhere.<br />And just like the internet, it advocates 24 hours a day and you cannot tell it to shut up.<br />
  9. 9. These people are advocating for better medical care for all of us… <br />Do you know these faces? Do you know these names?<br />
  10. 10. These people are advocating for better medical care for all of us…<br /> Do you know these faces?<br /> Do you know these names?<br />
  11. 11. “Give Us Our Dammed Data” for The Clinovations Gallery Show on 7-29-10 <br />Can we use our Cognitive Surplus <br />and activate our Consequential<br />Strangers to help <br />the Empowered Patient?<br />Do you wonder if it matters if someone<br />hears the patient’s story?<br />Do you doubt that working together <br />we can create a better medical system?<br />
  12. 12. On Tuesday the 13th 2010, I presented a speech at Health and Human Services about the importance of patient access to the electronic record.<br />Politely, I echoed e-Patient Dave’s call to action-<br />Give us our data. <br />How did I get to speak?<br />Because a husband and wife who own a Deli gave me a wall; a man who owns a gas-station gave another wall. I painted and you blogged, tweeted and posted on Facebook. <br />We are all patients in the end.<br />Together, let’s change the face of health care.<br />
  13. 13. Presents An Exhibit of Paintings <br />by Regina Holliday<br />e-Patient Ephemera<br />“73 cents meets the world of data capture”<br /> Thursday, July 29, 2010 <br />6 to 9pm<br />1000 Potomac Ave, NW Suite 125 <br />Georgetown, District of Columbia <br />
