Putting the hit in HIT w/ new music video: “Give Me My Damn Data” #HCR #HIT #ACA

The patient empowerment movement tuned into one of health care’s dirty little secrets. It can be hard to get your records from your doctor. To patients who want to be fully engaged in their own care — or use their experiences to move research forward — these records equal data. In other words, information that can be used for experimentation or decision-making.

So here is a video that includes New Hampshire’s  ePatient Dave Jamie Heywood from Patients Like Me  in Cambridge and Dr. Ross Martin, the president of The American College of Medical Informatimusicology (ACMImimi.org)

Gimme My DaM Data (Data about Me)

Well it’s one for the doctor
Two for the nurse
You say you’re tryin’ to treat me
So don’t make me feel worse

Gimme my DaM data
(Data about Me!)
Gimme My DaM Data
(Data about Me!)
Gimme my DaM data
It’s all about me so it’s mine

You can cut out my heart
Take it to the dump
Feed it to the dogs
Replace it with a pump
You can make me pop pills
Just to keep me alive
But there’s one more thing
I gotta have to survive

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It’s all about me so it’s mine

You can knock me out
To treat my gloom
Lock me up
In a rubber room
You can tie me down
And shock my brain
But just one cure’s
Gonna ease my pain

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It’s all about me so it’s mine

You can send me your bill
Charge me anything
Drive a nice car
Live like a king
With all the dough
That I pay
Tell me why is it so hard
To get my data right away

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It’s all about me so it’s mine

Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
Gimme my DaM data
It’s all about me so it’s mine
