Self-Care kicks off our new Medium channel.

Happy Friday! With Thanksgiving dinner in the rear-view, and having enjoyed time with friends and family, my thoughts return to managing our health and our health information. I took some time to write YouBase's very first @Medium post over the holiday, as I have been exploring the history of self-care movement, the evidence continues to stack up supporting the role that health data has to play in improving health, validating it's patient-empowering, and potentially disruptive role to play, according to disruptive innovation scion, Clayton Christensen.

Storms & Breaches; We must demand control of our personal information!

The time to demand data independence is right now!

Two major hurricaines blasting the Carribean and Gulf States. A bombshell Equifax data breach  of 143 million records - largest in US history - affecting almost every adult in the US, and a story that includes potential criminal activity, negligence, and incompetence. All this culminating in a veritable Black Swan for people who were affected by both. If it wasn't enough that criminals try to run scams off the suffering, it's frightening to think of what is in store for some people affected by the hurricaine. On top of the displacement and disruption to life and livelihood, a large number of people will face having their identities exposed on top of it. It's also safe to assume that some of those affected won't have the documents they need to prove their identity, their childrens identies, what they own, or what they may have lost. Insult added to injury.

Happy Independence Day In the USA from the team at YouBase!

While you are enjoying time with family and friends during this holiday why not use the day to remember to liberate your health information before you need it, and remind others that you care about to do it as well?

Imagine that a potential health emergency that falls on a Holiday... You might even need of a simple prescription refill or emergency pair of contact lenses, but imagine if it was something worse.  While it's not the usual time to think about liberating your health data from the healthcare system, it's as good a time as any and you might save yourself some headache, or much worse!
