Patient/Researcher Partnerships in a Post-Meaningful Use Era

People naturally turn to the Internet and social media when they have questions. Google reports 70,000 health-related searches are happening every 60 seconds. Today’s patients have easy access to information throughout every aspect of their lives, and a growing culture of online “peer health advice” has emerged where people with similar lived experiences crowdsource health questions and rely on the advice of others. Is this good? Is it bad? It doesn’t matter what you think because it is already happening. In this presentation, Liz Salmi will take you on a journey of how her own healthcare experiences and access to an online patient portal transformed her into a curious, engaged patient and accidental researcher during a post-meaningful use era. She will challenge assumptions about the capabilities of non-healthcare professionals, introduce OpenNotes—the healthcare transparency movement driving improved communication between clinicians and patients—and outline simple steps health systems and researchers can put into place to make it easier for patients to engage more meaningfully in the health information that is their own.
