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.

Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?

Our guest is Susan Wagner, President and co-founder of Equine Advocates. Founded in 1996, Equine Advocates has helped rescue thousands of equine from slaughter, abuse and neglect.
Equine Advocates originated and participated in many televised and print undercover investigations in the U.S. and Canada to expose horse slaughter auctions, horse slaughterhouses, the tragic fate of most camp horses, the abusive treatment of many mules, buggy horses and work horses by some Amish farmers, the miserable lives of PMU mares who are continually impregnated and turned into 4-legged drug machines to produce the drugs, Premarin, PremPro and Premphase, the cruel urban carriage horse trade and other informative reports exposing equine abuse and other forms of exploitation.
In 2004, Equine Advocates opened the Equine Advocates Rescue and Sanctuary on 140 acres in Chatham, NY, now home to 85 equine (with 3 wild horses, including Hayden, who was rounded up by the BLM in Montana). In 2006, they opened the Equine Education Center, where they hold lectures and symposiums on equine care, humane treatment, natural horsemanship and the enforcement of the cruelty laws. They also host the annual American Equine Summit.
This radio show is co-hosted by Debbie Coffey, Vice-President & Director of Wild Horse Affairs at Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
Join us as we talk with Paul Szablowski, the Senior Vice President of Communications and Image at Texas Health Resources, about “Creating a Fascinating Patient Experience.” Paul contends that treating patients should not be limited to prescribing medication and ordering tests. Instead, hospitals should re-examine the entire patient environment starting from the minute patients walk through the door, including lighting in the building and the type of questions that are asked. All these items are important as healthcare organizations find new and exciting ways to engage patients and shift towards value-based, holistic care.

Scaling the Human Factor with Employees
Among a brand's best champtions are its employees. Social is always about relationships and building trust. It’s people to people interaction. Research shows that customers trust people like ourselves far more than executives. So how do we turn employees into powerful, socially engaged advocates? Join me June 12th for a great conversation with author Chris Boudreaux.
CHRIS BOUDREAUX helps global brands transform their business operations through digital and social media. As an executive at a global consultancy, Chris is a globally recognized thought leader in social and digital technologies, operations, and governance. In 2011, he co-authored published The Most Powerful Brand on Earth with Susan Emerick of IBM. He is a governing member of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association, and his site, SocialMediaGovernance.com, serves practitioners worldwide.
