Health Is Social

Infusing Social Media into Healthcare

…And the Good Doctor Dreamt of Violent Revolution

The True Story:

Hospital: “This is a hospital, we must do something! If we don’t do something, something bad will happen.”

Doctor: “There’s nothing more to be done. The patient can go home – the illness is under control and her body’s natural processes will work in tandem with our treatments.”

Hospital: “Look: We are not the hospital that does not do something. We are the hospital that does not do nothing.”

…And that night, after the glasses of sad wine, the good doctor sank into the bed and dreamt of violent revolution.
