For decades researchers around the world have tried to get governments to increase the vitamin D levels,
but governments have not responded.
We need your help in getting the world to re-experience the benefits of vitamin D
This collaboration (is.gd/BringBackD) has the goal of bringing vitamin D levels back around the world in the next decade.
We need to determine:
Who benefits the most
Who will be the first adopters
Which first adopters will be more likely to spread the word?
Who Benefits the most?
Health Maintenance Organizations
Individuals with specific diseases
Individuals lacking health insurance or sick leave.
Organizations of individuals who are at high risk of suffering from low vitamin D
obese, diabetic, MS, seniors, dark skin, far from equator, pregnant
First Adopters: Of those who will benefit, who might be the high leverage early adopters?
Managers who are ambitious, (synonyms for translation: want to get-ahead, have serious competition, are desperately seeking a strategic advantage)
We will need to
Have different talents at different phases of the collaboration
Decide on which areas to focus on
Decide on which exact groups within those areas
Prepare presentation to those groups
Comment on the presentation
Need people to endorse the final presentation (researchers, doctors)
Make the presentation in person or video conference (far better than email)
Engage with the manager/group with the further steps as needed
Translate presentations into other languages
Who Benefits the Most?
|Benefits: Costs reduced|
|Fewer medical bills with same income|

|Have them feel benefits in < 2 months|
|Perhaps work thru high risk organizations|
Bring back = Restore to the levels of our great grandparents - between 40 and 60 ng
Veterans Administration (US) has already found that increasing vitamin D levels decreases costs.
Coast Guard (US) has been an early vitamin D adopter - greatly reduced sick leave.
Hospitals which have fixed reimbursements per procedure should be interested
(Procedure ==> reimbursement, no matter if there were complications)
- HMO and others who can profit from Vitamin D
- More likely to report that productvitiy was effected by health problems if low vitamin D - 2012
- How Health Insurance could profit from vitamin D
- Health Care Systems will save money by introducing vitamin D Lists of US HMOs and non-profit hosptials
- All items in category Cost Savings with Vitamin D
