If you’re not following @RasuShrestha, you’re missing out on some really good tweets. He’s sent a number of insightful tweets from RSNA that I thought were worth sharing..

I like the rhetoric of his statement, but I’d like to see more action too.

It’s interesting that they’re fans of consumerism. I know that many in healthcare don’t like to think of patients as consumers. They have good reasons for not wanting the comparison and it’s worthwhile to consider the difference. Plus, it’s worth noting that in our current system patients don’t really act like consumers. That’s why I think it’s true that consumerism is hitting healthcare.

I love plays on words. I’m going to have to chew on this one a bit more though.
