Unlocking Patient Engagement through Innovation – Dr. Hickey at the Engage Conference in Washington, DC
Day 2 of the Engage Conference: “Unlocking Patient Engagement through Innovation.” This morning’s Keynote is the Honorable Mike Honda, U.S. Congressman, 17th Congressional District of California. His topic is: “Mobile Health and What the Healthcare Industry Must Do to better serve Patients.”
Entrepreneurs and other innovators struggle to crack our 2.6 trillion dollar health care industry despite near universal agreement that quality and cost of our system lags significantly behind other countries. This panel of business, policy…, and technology experts described atypical market forces that constrained the investment and options for transforming America’s health care system. As a remedy, they shared how the enhanced data liquidity will power the informed-decision making and information technology-enabled business that bring disruption to the marketplace.
PALO ALTO, Calif. — Most public school teachers feel unprepared to teach math and reading to the Common Core standards that are rolling out in 45 states and the District, according to a poll of 800 teachers released Friday by the American Federation of Teachers.
The new standards, written by a group of states and embraced by the Obama administration, set common goals for reading, writing and math skills that students should develop from kindergarten through high school graduation. Curriculum is left to the states. The standards emphasize critical thinking and problem solving and are supposed to encourage students to think deeply about fewer topics.
While a clear majority — 75 percent — of teachers surveyed by the union said they support the Common Core, less than one-third said their school districts have given them the training and resources to teach to the new standards.
Many states have begun implementing the standards. All participating states are expected to have them in place by 2014, when students will take new standardized tests based on the Common Core. READ MORE

Hickey Sr., Executive Director at Each One – Teach One Alliance for Academic Access, Achievement and Success in Inglewood, Ca. proved to be well worth the wait for those of us in the Eastern and Central Time Zones of the country. An eclectic mixture of simmering anger, resentment and hope all found their way into the conversation pot producing in some instances relief for those seeking a bowl of venting soup or a forum for those raising their hands with possible ingredients for remedy, but without a doubt a gumbo of genuine concern and compassion for those touched by this epidemic. Surprisingly and certainly cutting against the grain of resigned to notions which stereotype men as the problem in this crisis, Mona Lishey, one of the show’s co-host raised the specter that perhaps some responsibility for the absence of fathers be attributed also to women. A notion I might add, Dr. Hickey as well as other males present agreed with, albeit with nervous trepidation. READ MORE
