I hear Mastodon is back! Here's a creepy beach that looks like an extra level in Myst!
Went to an exercise class this morning and thought, "why shower before exercise? I'll do it after". Then, in the class, we had to do jiujitsu moves with a partner where I basically put my crotch in a stranger's face repeatedly.
I'm reading the best escapist, alternate history, Reconstruction-era, feminist, critical race theory/zombie YA novel: Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
Seeing this I'm soooo appreciative of the trans healthcare activists and advocates who have been pushing through a deeply transphobic and conservative system. This information is at the top of everyone's chart. It's the first thing everyone looks at. It seems like a huge deal to what everyone from registration clerks to doctors will be expected to communicate
I need more details but seems like a huge improvement in what I've ever seen before which is just wrong name, wrong gender, or occasionally right gender (depending on who registered the patient) and notes in the chart that are sometimes really problematic. This system seems to model doing things right so can also teach the providers and staff as they use the system
My organisation bought a new electronic health record from the biggest EHR company and there's something really cool that is totally different from the half dozen systems I've used before: there are multiple sex and gender fields so the medical record can accurately show the patient's preferred name, correct pronoun, medical-care relevant, and organ-specific information. So if I understand right, front end staff will just see correct pronoun. Medical providers can see a flag indicating trans.
