The Coolest Tool in Healthcare: Participatory Patients!

“A growing body of evidence shows that patient engagement produces happier patients, lower costs, and better quality,” says David C. Colby, Ph.D. the Vice President, Research and Evaluation at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

That’s why I’m a life member of the Society of Participatory Medicine and follow the blog posts of ePatient Dave  (see his important presentation here). 

I believe that we, healthcare consumers, clinicians & scholars, will reach Dr. Colby’s ‘trifecta’ of happier patients, lower costs, & better quality, when we co-create a curated directory – to share & find the best resources. 

As well, I highly recommend that patients know what it means to be a Prepared Patient.
