JG:  This is Jordan Grumet. I am a hospice medical director for JourneyCare Hospice in Glenview, Illinois. I am going to talk to you about something probably different than anything else you're going to hear at the conference today.

My talk is going to be about our healthcare system in general and how we, as practitioners, can break the intimacy gap between doctors and patients and why that's important. I think we'll all agree that our healthcare system has changed.

Over the last few years, our connection to our patients has decreased. Our ability to spend time with them, be with them, and ultimately to affect our healthcare system has changed. Therefore, we need to do something about it. What we need to do is tell our stories.
