Race for a Vaccine

It’s hard to categorize what I’m feeling right now regrading COVID-19.  But at root, I think it’s a race, and I’m not sure how it’s going to play out (especially since I’ve stopped predicting things). On the one hand, we see spiking cases and deaths. At the original peak (in July) we were seeing ~70,000 new cases/day.  Now, that number…

For many healthcare professionals that spent time on the COVID frontlines early on, any pre-existing feelings of professional burnout were grossly exacerbated by lack of control, overwhelming uncertainty, isolation, and the loss of life.   When it comes to how to address burnout, I have to say, everyone who sits at the table talks a good game – especially in…

Hospitalist Perspectives: Logic as Bias

As I shared before, I really have gotten out of the business of predicting things.  Well, I thought I had.  But now I find myself being surprised by some things, which means I must have had some internal predictions that I wasn’t aware of.

Small sinks – what’s with that?

I guess it’s time to talk about product design again.  Please, when you make a new product (or a new version of an old product), please keep your users in mind.  Think about and understand how they’re supposed to use your product, and make sure it meets their needs.  As an example, (and I realize that this may not be…
