With great sadness I share with the SIDM community that Larry Weed MD, at
age 93, passed away June 3rd in Underhill Vermont. I know only a few on this
list knew Larry personally and many more certainly remember his towering
personality, intellect, creativity and his pure genius.  Over 50 years ago
when medicine was a mostly male, paternalistic fraternity, Larry published
and spoke to the need to have the patient first and to have the patient
engaged in shared decision-making. He advocated for "open notes" when they
were paper notes!   Foremost Larry wanted us to have real impact.  In
addition to creating the Problem-Oriented record, the SOAP note format and
Problem-Knowledge Couplers, Larry continued right up until his passing to
advocate for a publically open, problem-oriented digital medical knowledge
network.  Larry and his son Lincoln contributed to the first issue of
Diagnosis

And if you are not at all familiar with Larry it is well worth watching his
1971 Grand Rounds at Emory

My question to the group:  When are we going to start paying attention to
Goal 3 of the NAS Report?
