Despite years of rhetoric, patients have never really been at the center of the health care universe. At least not since the introduction of electronic health records (EHR). And this has become increasingly obvious in the fight for access and control of patient medical data. A recent conversation between former Vice President Joe Biden and Epic CEO Judy Faulkner highlights the problem well.
Last Friday, U.S. civil rights activist Jesse Jackson publicly disclosed that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease – a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. He announced that he and his family first noticed symptoms of the neurodegenerative disorder, “about three years ago.” Unfortunately for Reverend Jackson, and the other 1 million people in the U.S. (more than 10 million worldwide) living with the disease, at present, there is no cure.
Articles and headlines around the globe have focused on traumatic brain injuries (TBI) for many years - with increasing frequency and urgency for prevention and treatment measures as neuroscientific advancements move forward. In fact, neuroscience is often referred to as the last frontier of medical research. Staggering costs of care, loss of life and international collaborations to understand human beings are propelling the field forward.
OK OK OK I know they're makeshift and missing a key element. The point was he tried to use what we had at home to make my day better.
But I totally have respect for Canada taking such a strong stance on this.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
