For the past two months, the Flower team has been stirring our idea pot, circling around to distill from your and our many thoughts the bare essence of what Flower is. On waves and Skype calls, we’ve spend hours working on communicating our ideas clearly and succinctly.
Last week, five of us (Steve Daviss, Carlos Rizo, Dirk Stanley, Tim Sturgill, and Cindy Throop) finalized our Mission and Vision statements. This has actually been a rather challenging process, but I think we’re there now.
Flower advocates for a common “language” so you, your providers and the places where you receive care can talk and share your health data in real time, when needed and as authorized.
Flower’s vision is that
patients we should be able to access their our health data and have universal standards for sharing it with who they we want.
We welcome comments, criticisms, and kudos. Even more importantly, we welcome further involvement from anyone interested in making this vision reality. Roll up your sleeves and join a call, contribute to a wave, add a comment below, or email us.
[Edit 3/13: In Vision Statement, changed "patients" to "we", because we are all patients.]
