There are, and there should be, many different flavors of community in healthcare. For us, that means:
We are supporters first, and competitors second (or third) - everyone is at a different stage in their journey. All feedback should be supportive and constructive. We're all here to get better *together.*
In-person gatherings whenever possible
Participants at minimum should be committed to the Triple Aim in healthcare: reducing cost, improving quality, and making care more patient-focused
