On entering the blogosphere

So why you may ask is a Transplant surgeon joining the 'blogosphere'. I am not someone who envisions themself as having large numbers of followers via Twitter or a huge presence on Facebook, let alone being able to manage a dynamic Blog site.

I am here to hopefully add value by informing, clarifying and filling a niche that currently needs to be filled in cyberspace. The healthcare sector is now having to undergo major change, as described in the following link to the Third Healthcare Revolution . Some of this necessary change involves having the appropriate linkages created between the human elements with the tools provided by information technology, such that knowledge can be shared and managed.

In another 5 years, musings via such a blog may no longer be relevant as the appropriate knowledge management networks will be in place, achieved by blending and combining people with technology.
