WORKING TOGETHER TO SOLVE HEALTH CARE’S MOST PRESSING PROBLEMS

What might happen if leaders in academic medicine elevated under-heard voices and learned from the greatest untapped resource in health care: patients and their families? At Stanford Medicine X, we advance health care by creating change that places the patient at the center of academic medicine.

We create a culture of health in which everyone is trusted and respected for the expertise they bring, where openness and experimentation is the norm, people have personal ownership of health, individual stories have a global impact, and the patient voice and choice is part of all stakeholder decisions. We call our way of seeing each other and the health care world, Everyone Included™.

Medicine X is Stanford's premier program on emerging technology and medicine, focusing on patient-centered innovation.

At the heart of Medicine X, is Everyone Included™, our framework based on principles of mutual respect and inclusivity.

CREATING CHANGE ON A GLOBAL SCALE

As the most-discussed academic medical program in the world, Medicine X is making tangible change on a global scale. We advance health care with humanity by bringing together all health care stakeholders to co-create solutions that are transforming how health care is advanced and delivered. From the White House Precision Medicine Initiative to Apple Research Kit, Medicine X is a catalyst for change by bringing an Everyone Included™ framework to health care innovation. Our programs have proven that innovation can be dramatically accelerated when patients, caregivers, providers and end-users of health care are engaged by academic medicine in collaboration and co-creation.
