    e-Patient Dave says "Let Patients Help!"

    in Health

    Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient.  An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.  


    In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!


    When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.


    In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.


    But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.


    Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.


    See also Dave's new book, Let Patients Help! A patient engagement handbook - how doctors, nurses, patients and caregivers can partner for better health care.  http://www.epatientdave.com/let-patients-help/

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce speak with Dr. Julia Hallisy about The Empowered Patient Coalition: providing healthcare improvement and patient safety tools directly to consumers.

    About Dr. Hallisy:


    Dr. Julia Hallisy obtained her BS in Biological Science from the University of San Francisco in 1984 and a second Bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Dental Sciences.

Since that time, she has been a full-time practicing San Francisco dentist.

    Her second child, Katherine Eileen, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.
      
    Dr. Hallisy began to research the topic of patient safety in 1998. She has lobbied for health care reform in Washington, DC with Consumer’s Union.

    The Three Pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy

    in Business

    Input, Solutions, Culture


    Pharmaguy interviews Anne C. Beal, MD, MPH, Chief Patient Officer, Sanofi, and Melva T. Covington, MPH, MBA., PhD, Project Leader, Research and Develooment, Sanofi. They talk about their roles in bringing the patient perspective into Sanofi's work to advance Sanofi's ability to deliver health care solutions that matter most to patients and those who care for them.


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
    Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
    Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
    What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
    Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
    What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?

    PSHRadio Speaks To Dr. Barry E. Taff

    in Paranormal

    Dr. Barry E. Taff, who holds a doctorate in psychophysiology with a minor in biomedical engineering, is a world-renowned parapsychologist who worked out of UCLA’s former Parapsychology Laboratory from 1969 through 1978 as a research associate.  During his four-decade career, Dr. Taff has investigated more than 4,500 cases of ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists and conducted extensive studies in telepathy and precognition, eventually developing the initial protocols and methodologies for what was later termed “remote viewing”.  He also, was himself, investigated as a psychic subject, the results of which were published in Behavioral Neuropsychiatry, “A Laboratory Investigation of Telepathy: The Study of A Psychic”, Vol. 6, Nos. 1-12, April-December 1974-January-March, 1975.  


    One of the cases Dr. Taff investigated in 1974 gained international fame as the book and motion picture, The Entity, starring Barbara Hershey and Ron Silver, released by Fox in 1983.  Dr. Taff served as technical advisor on The Entity as well as being represented in the film by the character “Gene Kraft”. What’s unknown by the media is the fact that, in real life, The Entity followed its female victim for quite some time after our initial investigation, continuing its vociferous nature. Doris Bither died in 1999 of cardiopulmonary arrest at the age of 58.
