ClickCare Café

Medicine, Movies, and mHealth

Harrison Ford isn’t one for small talk. And he hadn’t ever spoken in public about Star Wars… until last week. In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, and to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Harrison Ford finally discussed the making of Star Wars.


Mobile Health, mHealth, 
coordinated and accountable care...are some of the buzz words currently in the media. It is possible to save billions of dollars if we act on these words (concepts) well. One of Mr. Ford's comments caught my imagination because of its connection to making ClickCare (equal measures collaboration, creativity, medical expertise, and art)… and to the process of making the “product” of fantastic medical care for our patients:

“[Making movies] is a collaborative process. And I think what it speaks to more than anything else is that when you have the opportunity to make something and you care about what it is you’re making, you try and you try and you try. You just don’t settle. You try because you care about the product.”

Here at ClickCare, we draw from wisdom in many fields, especially where we can learn something about collaboration. As you know, we are impassioned about collaboration in medicine.  This is inspiring, even if it is Hollywood.  Collaboration and creativity go together–in medicine, and in movies.
