Description

Roni Zeiger is the CEO of Smart Patients. He will conduct a 90-minute Master Class on patient-driven health care. The final curriculum will be shaped by the learners themselves through their course applications, but tentatively includes: 

  1. We're witnessing an evolution from patient-centered healthcare–where expert clinicians and researchers conduct their work by carefully considering the patient's needs–to a system where patients are co-creators and true collaborators in their care and even in research.
  2. Can this and should this go further, where patients (or their family caregivers) lead the way?
  3. In this class, we'll discuss early examples of patients driving progress in research and health care delivery, and together we'll imagine where else this might happen next. 

Dr. Roni Zeiger is the former Chief Health Strategist at Google where he led efforts ranging from Google Flu Trends to Symptom Search. He is now  CEO of Smart Patients, which aims to leverage the knowledge of expert patients in order to accelerate the era of precision medicine. Roni continues to see patients part-time at a local urgent care center. He earned his MD at Stanford and completed his internal medicine residency at the University of California, San Francisco. He has served as a Clinical Instructor of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, and also received a masters degree in biomedical informatics from Stanford. Roni co-founded the blog Seduce Health, and writes for ABCNews.com and The Huffington Post. He has written and edited several medical textbooks and has published articles on topics including continuing medical education, clinical decision support tools, and searching for health information on the web.
