I still recall the day in 2010 that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reached out and requested and then subsequently posted our (Hygeia Foundation d/b/a True North Health Center) quality improvement tool…
As a non-profit research institute and innovation laboratory … and quite frankly a disruptive innovator … it was important to see the work of our circle being recognized by such a well-regarded organization steeped within the traditional medical model and being used to better the health and healthcare of patients and families, doctors and nurses and others, and communities.
NOTE: This tool was also recognized by the American College of Physicians – Internists.

LESSON: Continue to improve, continue to innovate, and when necessary become that disruptive innovator. The healthcare status quo is causing much harm and it is essential that we profoundly change the system for the betterment of all.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Apple Computer, Inc.
