Warner Throughout the years I've known you, you have been such an inspiration to me. My latest grant using patient preferences in healthcare just got funded by the NLM. It focuses on data science as a tool for making care more patient-centered. In particular, the work helps physicians "profile" patients based on patterns in their preferences and then seeks to predict what treatment makes persons of a given pattern happiest or most satisfied. The technology is adapted from Amazon and is something called a "recommender system." It is all built on the idea of allowing patients to tell each other what works. I am thinking of you. Warmest regards, Les
