Ted Quinn writes in MedCity News:

What healthcare needs is a Care Management System built to support team-based care and empower users to clearly understand and communicate the state of play of their healthcare. Given the complexity of care surrounding patients working with multiple providers, the challenge of logging, updating, and communicating the state of care activities is a constant problem for patient teams. ….Dr. John Halamka…stated the issue at hand in a recent interview, ‘What we really need is a combination of Wikipedia and Facebook. The Wikipedia part is the narrative of your life, and it’s written by a team and updated frequently. Facebook-like [timelines] contain the events that are happening now.”’
