When you’re forging a new path you have to be willing to fail, try new things and be open to new ideas from all sources, especially from team members who are in the trenches and have a pulse on the customer. You never know where the next brilliant idea will come from, and if you’re not actively soliciting ideas from all levels and listening you’ll miss the gems.

There are very few books I reread for pleasure, but Steingarten’s book is pure joy. I heartily relate to his intense compulsion and scientific curiosity behind each dish he encounters. One of the best chapters is about the lobster roll–primarily, the role of the lobster in that sandwich from conception through molting through its final moments of life. Tacos, baguettes, turducken, you name it. He answers questions about our food we would not think to ask, yet are inextricably linked to health and humanity.

We’re building a visual language for health. Visual patterns graphs and sequential tracking of MSQs and PROMIS Global Health scores provide a comprehensive picture of patient’s health and trajectory.

Published March 23, 2016

Functional-medicine practitioners have described the timeline and matrix as “invaluable” for developing individualized treatment plans.

The cloud-based software then automatically maps the information into the timeline and matrix. This enables the doctor to review the patient’s answers and meet him at the first appointment with the beginnings of fully populated documents in hand, prepared to dive deeper into his health issues and discuss individualized treatment approaches.
