About the hangout
Do you consider yourself an epatient—empowered, engaged in your care, and equipped with knowledge about your condition? Then Stanford Medicine X is for you. In this hangout, we’re specifically reaching out to ePatients. We’d love to share your story of empowerment at the next Medicine X (September 2014). Don’t miss this live conversation if you’d like to learn more about the program, wonder what you might get out of the experience, or how to apply! Learn more about our 2014 Stanford Medicine X ePatient scholarship program.
I’m delighted to announce the opening of applications for our 2014 Medicine X ePatient Scholarship applications. Each year, Medicine X reserves 10% of our main hall seating for ePatients to attend as part of our ePatient scholarship program. The program itself involves more than just attending the three day Stanford Medicine X conference September 26-28, 2014. We provide mentorship and opportunities for ePatients to develop their skills and networks before, during and after the conference is over.
We are so excited to announce the dates for Stanford Medicine X 2014!
After our world-record breaking 2013 conference, we’re excited to be back for another Medicine X conference September 26-28, 2014 at the LKSC conference center on the campus of the Stanford University School of Medicine. Please save the date! We look forward to seeing you at Stanford in the Fall.
At our annual ePatient retreat this weekend in Sausalito, California, our Medicine X advisors (Liza Bernstein, Hugo Campos, Nick Dawson, Britt Johnson, Sarah Kucharski, and Christopher Snider) had an opportunity to reflect on our 2013 Medicine X conference and plan for the future – Medicine X September 26-28, 2014.
I first met the folks at Symplur in Paris France, at the fantastic Doctors 2.0 conference that is run by Denise Silber. According to their website, the firm’s mission is “connecting the dots in healthcare social media”.
Medicine X is an academic conference designed for everyone. As part of that inclusive mission, we’ve created special programs designed to encourage ePatients, academic scholars and students to participate in the conference. We are proud to announce our Global Access Program, which will allow anyone who can’t join us at Stanford to attend virtually through a high-quality streaming webcast. And the price to view the webcast is one that anyone can afford: it’s free.
Join us here on Wednesday, August 21 at 8pm ET | 7pm CT | 5pm PT for a live hangout with Dr. Roni Zeiger and Britt Johnson. We’ll broadcast the hangout via Google+. You can bookmark this page and return here on the 21st to watch live.
In early 2013 Roni Zeiger, MD proclaimed that patients are micro-experts in their own diseases. He and his partners at Smart Patients are building a platform to help patients collaborate as a network of experts. Roni is the former Chief Health Strategist at Google where he led efforts ranging from Google Flu Trends to Symptom Search.
Britt Johnson is a 2012 Medicine X ePatient and a member of the 2013 Medicine X ePatient Advisory Board. She has been featured in Medicine X Films, and blogs about her experience as a patient with rheumatoid arthritis at TheHurtBlogger.
We asked Roni and Britt to join us for the next Medicine X hangout to discuss expert patients, online engagement and the benefits of physician-designers. We’ll be taking questions via a simultaneous tweetchat as well. To participate and submit questions, follow and use the #MedX hashtag. We look forward to seeing you here on Wednesday, August 21st!
Medicine X is pleased to announce its ePatient eBook, entitled Our ePatients. The book is designed to provide insight into our 2013 Stanford Medicine X e-Patient Scholarship program and will share the stories of the 34 ePatient scholars attending the conference September 27-29, 2013.
Medicine X is a catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and health care. The Medicine X initiative is designed to explore the potential of social media and information technology to advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care. The “X” is meant to evoke a move beyond numbers and trends—it represents the infinite possibilities for current and future information technologies to improve health.
