What might the medical team of the future look like? How can patients partner with healthcare providers, hospitals, pharmacists, and all stakeholders as valued members of the healthcare team? This panel discussion will explore how patients are involved as members of the healthcare team as well as how healthcare is delivered as we attempt to envision the future of participatory medicine. We'll hear from leading thinkers in the fields of health care, design, and enterprise, as they share their insights on how collaboration with patient communities is shaping the practice of medicine. 

Christopher Snider was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the fall of 2002 during his freshman year at Virginia Tech. For the next four years he coasted through his diabetes management, likely supported by his pancreas' honeymoon phase.

He didn't join Twitter until 2008, but one of the first people he followed was sharing her experiences with her own diabetes (@sixuntilme). After a few months, he started to pay attention to her blog, then other diabetes blogs, then he started sharing his experiences with diabetes on Twitter. Up until this point, he hadn't known anything about the diabetes community, or the impact it could have on his life.

On January 1, 2009, he started his own diabetes blog. Five years later he is still blogging, sharing the ups and downs of life (sometimes diabetes-related). He actively participates and advocates on behalf of the diabetes community whenever possible—be it Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, blogging, or even his podcast, he's all about making connections and sharing stories.

Ann Lindsay MD is Co-Director of Stanford Coordinated Care (SCC). SCC is capitated for primary care of Stanford employees and adult dependents with complex chronic health conditions. Care is provided through a partnership between patients and families and their multidisciplinary care team including physical therapy, behavioral health, nutrition therapy and clinical pharmacy and primary care. Emphasis is placed on the patient’s own goals, care coordination with specialists, and on helping patients gain the skills to be healthy with whatever conditions they faced with. SCC has developed a dashboard that pulls from EPIC EHR to risk assess patients and identify care gaps and a Team Training Center to share the model of care. She currently serves on the Clinical Advisory Committee for the Pacific Business Group on Health CMMI supported project, Intensive Outpatient Care Program, which seeks to enroll 27,000 patients in three states by 2015.

She is a fellow in the California Health Care Foundation Leadership Program and joined the IHI (Institute for Health Improvement) faculty in October, 2013. Prior to moving to Stanford in 2011, Dr. Lindsay shared a family practice with her husband, Dr Alan Glaseroff, in rural Northern California for 28 years. During this time she served as County Health Officer for 18 years and was active in the leadership of the California Conference of Local Health Officers in Sacramento. In 2006 she received the Plessner Award from the California Medical Association as the physician who best exemplified the practice and ethics of a rural practitioner.

Erin Moore's work in the cystic fibrosis community began when her son was born in 2010. Her initial involvement was in fundraising and then she began working at the State Advocacy Chair for the Ohio Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In 2012, Erin started working with Cincinnati Children's Hospital in their Pulmonary Department on quality improvement work, bringing all stakeholders to the table in designing systems and tools to better meet the needs of patients, clinicians and researchers to improve health and care in the cystic fibrosis community. Erin is a member of the Committee for Patient Engagement at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and works on the Committee for Patient & Clinician Engagement on the New York CDRN.

Dr. Vivian Lee graduated from Harvard-Radcliffe College at age 19 and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University, where she received a Ph.D. in medical engineering. Returning to Harvard Medical School, she earned her M.D. with honors. She completed her residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Duke, where she also served as Chief Resident and trained as a fellow in Body and Cardiovascular MRI and Thoracic Imaging at NYU. In 2006, she added three more initials after her name, graduating as valedictorian with an MBA degree at NYU's Stern School of Business. She went on to serve as the inaugural Vice Dean for Science, Senior Vice-President and Chief Scientific Officer of New York University Langone Medical Center. Lee’s research credentials are equally impressive. She’s published more than 150 peer-reviewed studies, is the author of Cardiovascular MRI: Physical Principles to Practical Protocols, and is currently the principal investigator for three NIH R01 grants. She’s also the acting chair of the Association of American Medical College's advisory panel on research. In July, 2011, Lee headed West with her husband, Benedict Kingsbury and their four daughters to settle in Salt Lake City. She currently leads the University of Utah Health Sciences, which includes five major schools (School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, and colleges of Nursing, Pharmacy and Health) and a health care system comprised of four hospitals, dozens of clinical and research specialty centers, a network of 10 Salt Lake City-area health centers, a health plan, and over 1,000 board-certified physicians serving patients from six western states. Lee sees the current challenges around health care not as a threat but as an unprecedented opportunity to rethink everything we do and transform our system.

Over the past 2 years, she’s focused on streamlining processes and improving efficiency in health care to provide the highest quality care at the lowest possible cost. Two of her key initiatives have been implementing Lean Management principles into the health care system and creating a new costing tool called Value-Driven Outcomes (VDO). She is dedicated to ensuring that patients in the University of Utah's Region have access to the best and most efficient health care available. When not working, Lee and her family have been exploring Utah’s backcountry and discovering all of the different activities made possible by what the state claims is “the greatest snow on Earth.”
