On this day in 1865, more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, those who found themselves still enslaved in Galveston, Texas had their hopes realized and their prayers answered. Contrary to what others had told them, the rumors they had heard were indeed true. The Civil War had ended, and they were now free.

General Gordon Granger issued the call with "General Order No. 3" saying "The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. " June 19, or Juneteenth, is now observed in 31 states. Nearly a century and a half later, the descendants of slaves and slave owners can commemorate the day together and celebrate the rights and freedoms we all share in this great nation that we all love.

This moment also serves as a time for reflection and appreciation, and an opportunity for many people to trace their family’s lineage. African Americans helped to build our nation brick by brick and have contributed to her growth in every way, even when rights and liberties were denied to them. In light of the historic unanimous vote in the United States Senate this week supporting the call for an apology for slavery and segregation, the occasion carries even more significance.

Proposed National Fairness and Growth Campaign Global Change Health Collaborative

I am proposing as Fred Hargrove, Sr. PE. MBA's Chief of Staff that the Global Change Health Collaborative be created as a committee of The National Fairness and Growth Campaign. by June 19th 2009 In this plan the Collaboration will assemble a alliance of health professionals, non profits and for profit enterprises dedicated to creating through The National Fairness and Growth Campaign a global health care service organization that is supportive of world class health care from a headquarters in Ohio. The Collaboration will be Chaired by Fred Hargrove, Sr. PE, MBA who is a Campaign Co-Chairman and Campaign member Cincinnati Change Treasurer and Chief Engineer.

The National Fairness and Growth Campaign knows that in most ways, the United States is the global leader in health care spending over 2 trillion dollars a year. From the best-trained doctors to the most state-of-the art medical equipment to breakthrough treatments for deadly diseases, Americans expect and often receive the best care anywhere – if they can pay. There are over 50 million people in the country without access to this system and we plan to create a system that meets their home health care needs.

Yet despite our many assets and strengths, there is significant room for improvement. Our two trillion dollar medical system depends far too much on antiquated paper files and out-of-date customs to make it work. The digital tools that have radically improved productivity and quality across our economy have barely touched health care, and it shows. In America we spend over a 100 billion a year on health care technology. Yet, we believe, in general, that health care is all too often inconvenient for patients.

While almost every sector of our economy is transforming itself through new world class computerized processes our health care sector remains characterized by islands of advanced technologies in a sea of paper. Americans spend significantly more per capita on health care than the citizens of any other country, yet we do not receive commensurately greater quality of care across the board. We know that paper-based systems contribute to medical errors that drive up costs and harm patient safety.

We’re letting down our doctors too. By keeping vital patient information out of their hands, we limit their ability to make the best medical decisions. By failing to automate prescribing and delivery systems, we subvert their intentions and confuse their instructions. By failing to collect information on quality and outcomes, we decline to provide them with the best data they could have about the results of medications and treatments, information that would help them save lives.

We plan to change that and add technologies such as direct-to-consumer connectivity, secure real-time online access to critical information and aggregation and analysis of detailed data from experts from around the world through unified communications [UC] with patented technology that does just that. Our UC cloud will pass 500 million people by 2020.

We will change, with potential partners such as The Christ Hospital and Accenture, a statewide public health information management system that too often fails our patients into one that erases the eHealth divide, first in Cincinnati from a headquarters in the Empowerment Zone, then in allied regions in southern Ohio. This will happen through what we call our Universal Health Information Network Operations Center Plan of Action.

These Universal Health Information Network Operations Plan of Action create home health care centers for 20,000 households that will use patented technology which let all electronic signals be reconciled with other electronic signals and be processed so as to deliver to the end user the eHealth care information where they need it, when they need it and on whatever electronic device they have that can use it.

It will be demonstrated in Ohio that we can change the “siloed” health care information system and bring solutions within reach of those who need it. As part of that mission of the Collaborative demonstration of the Cincinnati Change Health Collaborative will advance the availability of world class quality health services for all, including low-income, racial/ethnic minority populations and other underserved populations, in a secure, timely, efficient, responsive and coordinated system of care.

We will offer services to Tristate employers from the Cincinnati Empowerment Zone starting with Mount Auburn’s 5,619 residents and their allied families and friends in our Ohio demonstration service area.

The National Fairness and Growth Campaign Global Change Health Collaborative will work to ensure that Federal, state, local and private efforts to develop and coordinate advances in technology in the health arena include funding, programs and initiatives for underserved communities in southern Ohio.

It is our plan to develop our first cloud of world class eHealth infrastructure in Cincinnati where we will work to develop a global health care alliance. It would support a network of regional health care information service organizations in support of best practices health care outcomes.

Cincinnati Change as a member of the National Fairness and Growth Campaign believes that the people of Cincinnati along with the residents of southern Ohio along with policy makers and employers have the opportunity and obligation to address the issue head-on of the health care gap in these historic times. It is the time for bold action in a Cincinnati Change mission to erase the eHealth divide in southern Ohio. Thereby Cincinnati Change is, today July 11th 2009, announcing the formation of The Cincinnati Change Health Collaborative demonstration.

We will contribute information technologies in support of coordinated preventive and primary care in both public and private sectors that will enhance the lives of all people in southern Ohio with a 2009 targeted service area that consists of the Cincinnati Empowerment Zone. Since 2002 the Organizers of Cincinnati Change have targeted the Cincinnati Empowerment Zone which is a region that has over 50,000 residents, 3,000 employers and 68,000 employees along with their families.

In addition from a headquarters in Mt. Auburn we shall create a demonstration in Cincinnati that is supportive of eHealth systems in southern Ohio, with partners like IBM, Blackbox,. V + V Construction Company, CDW, TESSCO, The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences and or faith based partners like the United Methodist Church, that will concentrate training African Americans in eHealth through a network connecting centers of learning and health care treatment.

These health professionals will serve both domestically, starting in southern Ohio, and as well as part of a 50 region domestic alliance of health care professionals and service organizations.

President Obama has urged Congress to act on health care legislation. His plea was for lawmakers to act now, or the opportunity will be lost: "If we don't get it done this year [2009], we're not going to get it done."

On June 6, a nationwide health care campaign will be held, and President Obama's organization, Organizing for America, has invited volunteers for a meeting to describe the effort. This was to be our organizing call for that event through a National Fairness and Growth Conference Call from 3 PM to 6 PM
