33 charts – A sandbox for new ideas
Ultimately 33 charts is a sandbox for my ideas and thinking. Writing here helps me understand how I view the world. Placing ideas in the public space helps them take shape in a way that helps the greater good. What’s here are not finished ideas. These are the earliest iterations of bigger things for myself and you the reader.
My best insights come when I focus on the tensions experienced in my full-time work as a clinician. I look for unique angles and elements that cast a lens on broader, emerging trends in medicine. In the words of Edwin Schlossberg as popularized by Tim O’Reilly, “the skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think.” This is precisely what I strive to do.
Founded as a center of community for a changing world
What you find on 33 charts site reflects my core belief that this is the most interesting time to be in medicine. We are front stage to the most transformational period in medical history. Eric Topol has called this The Creative Destruction of Medicine. We are witnessing an ‘unprecedented super-convergence of technologies’ that are redefining the concept of physician and patient. It’s my view of these changes that drives 33 charts.
Founded in 2009 as a center of community and thought leadership for the issues doctors face in a digital world, 33 charts was included in the National Library of Medicine permanent web archive in 2014.
