Grassroots HealthCare - On the Internet

It is THE place to BE if you are about changing healthcare. We are a node in the exponentially growing web of HealthCare 2.0, a participitory movement redefining what healthcare means in the 21st century.

This website,, is a web portal serving a radically visionary organization. We are a unique virtual learning community and community of practice created to "change the channel" in healthcare today. Radical new ideas and a radical commitment to actually using the good "old" ones are needed to protect our communities, families, and children. For the future. Now.

The site offers a set of tools and spaces that facilitate satisfying, valuable and effective group discussion and project collaboration. To help us work better as a community, it also offers access to a unique collection of valuable information, educational experiences, and opportunities for personal growth and transformation.

And, It is really about real people. All of us. People we've never met in our own communities. People whose stories we've never heard. People who care about their children. It is about being here, side-by-side, with so many others who care passionately enough about this cause that we can actually breathe life into it. It is about being inspired - together. It is about being acknowledged, valued. It is about creating change with the best team you could choose for the job. It is about being a part of history in the making.

It is part home. It is part workplace. It is part library. Part meeting room. Part learning laboratory. But, most of all, it is a smart, diverse, committed, effective, collaborating social network forming a hub for radical reform in healthcare.

As a place, Grassroots HealthCare is a browser enabled web venue for virtual collaboration, learning, and community activism in healthcare.
As an activity, it is about discovery, caring and contributing. About helping people in need. About helping a broken system heal and thrive.
As an experience, it is a rich public collection of news, content, services, and experiential learning and collaboration opportunities inspired and by the need to radically improve quality in healthcare
