If you’re on social media, you’ve probably seen the #WhatTheHealthcare hashtag that was started by HealthSparq. Along with the social media posts, they’ve also created a #WhatTheHealthcare! site that aggregates the frustrating healthcare stories that are out there.
Here’s a sample of the type of #WhatTheHealthcare stories they’re sharing:
As the title of this post says, it’s brilliant, but also very sad. There are so many #WhatTheHealthcare moments out there and we need to do better.
If you have a #WhatTheHealthcare moment, share it with us in the comments or on Twitter with the #WhatTheHealthcare hashtag. I have a feeling these stories are just getting started. The only way we can fix these problems is if we’re not afraid to share them. The next step that might be interesting is pairing these #WhatTheHealthcare moments with solutions.
So far most of the #WhatTheHealthcare stories have been from the patient perspective. It would be interesting to hear all the #WhatTheHealthcare stories from the doctors, nurse, front desk, HIM, etc perspectives as well.
