Racist History of American Medicine

Trying to Put a Value on the Doctor-Patient Relationship

“The question of what the role of a primary-care physician should be, and how it should be valued, has perhaps never been more urgent. That figure, typically a general practitioner, family doctor or internist, is a patient’s first and often most personal connection to the rest of the health care system”.

We’re trying to address this issue in the Indian healthcare system too through the concept of at Medical Art and Humanities Foundation of India amalgamating humanities, stories & visuals. Please connect with the FB page of @maahfi as we’ll come up with a live talk soon to talk on this topic.

Trying to Put a Value on the Doctor-Patient Relationship In its push for profits, the U.S. health care system has made it difficult for patients to get personal attention from doctors. But what if hands-on medicine actually saves money — and lives?

Our Story

Stories are the final product of visual input (observation) & narrative (listen, acknowledge, absorb, interpret and act). Both of these are foundations of medical practice and imperative in doctor-patient communication. Indian healthcare sector had always had a vaccum in the field of visual communication in medicine. This can be addressed by scientific and aesthetic application of visuals & narratives for documenting medicine – from therapeutic procedures to public health. We @MAAHFI are in a quest to address the need and establish this art of communication in medicine, with the aid of VISUAL NARRATIVE MEDICINE (VNM).

“Visual narrative medicine” is a genre of digital storytelling (typically between 2-5 minutes) combining clinical &/ non-clinical photographs, video clips and audio (voice &/ ambient sound) that reveal the stories of medicine & healthcare in a new light.

Amalgamating the age-old tradition of storytelling and the new-age digital (imaging) technology, MAAHFI offers new vistas for documenting medicine for both the public and private healthcare sectors in India, as well as other social organisations working in healthcare. Engaging doctors, care-givers, patients and social workers, MAAHFI functions as a social initiative to radically transform the way we see, record and treat illnesses.

Visual narrative medicine is the brainchild of Dr. Kaushik Ghosh (GIS ARPS): a product of his creative and scientific involvement and research in photographic application of visuals in the field of medical education, clinical practice and medical humanities.
