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.

Come and join the Cautious Patient Communities where patients and families learn how to be informed and involved in their healthcare. This leads to better healthcare outcomes, as well as a sense of no longer being an outsider in your own care!
Take control and be part of the solution to learn more about being responsible and effective advocates for yourselves and your loved ones.
Medication errors happen at home, in the hospital and in the pharmacy.
We will be interviewing Maria L. Franco PharmD, CGP who will share her expertise on some of the most common errors and how they can be avoided. She will be sharing actual stories of how medication misuse and improper use can change the outcome of patient care.
Learn how medication dependency and abuse may be avoided with a Designated Medication Manager and how errors in the hospitals may be prevented with patient and family participation.
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.
Monday night, November 11, meet Jeff. Learn about how he spoke up and his actions of being informed and getting involved changed the course of his care and maybe even saved his life!

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?

Mike and Joyce speak with Casey Quinlan of Mighty Casey Media, author and blogger about patients’ rights and the value of patient input in medical research.
Some medical institutions are beginning to “get” that the patients need to be involved from the beginning in all aspects of medical process and procedure. The patients are the “customers” and are the essential “stakeholders” in designing buildings, clinical trials, and indeed the business workflow surrounding all interactions between doctor and patient.
Come hear Casey’s thoughts on how patients can and should be involved.
“While some [doctors'] offices are looking at increasing their front desk staff, we should be looking at what banks have done. Limit services to those focusing on new patients and special needs. The days of having your name called out in a crowded doctor’s waiting room should be over – that is, unless you really like being asked at the front desk what you are there for (while a long line of patients eagerly await your answer). It’s time to reinvent your practice’s workflow, and it begins by being creative and tapping into your patient’s experience.” — Pete Rivera, Hayes Management Consultant, HIMSS Health Information Systems
“I have this dream. It’s about how, when I make an appointment to see my doctor – my primary care physician – the process is easy, honors my time as much as it does my doctor’s, and winds up running smoothly for both parties.” — Casey Quinlan – See more at: http://www.disruptivewomen.net/2010/12/24/all-i-want-for-christmas-is-customer-service-at-my-doctor%E2%80%99s-office/#sthash.SGi2n6pa.dpuf
Dr. Julia Hallisy is a practicing dentist in San Francisco, California. In 1989, Dr. Hallisy’s late daughter, Katherine, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with Kate’s life-threatening diagnosis marked the beginning of a 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The 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.
The many lessons she learned during Kate’s life became the foundation for her book, The Empowered Patient: Hundreds of life-saving facts, action steps and strategies you need to know. Dr. Hallisy works at The Empowered Patient Coalition non-profit organization and has worked with the California Nurses Association, the IOM Initiative on the Future of Nursing and is a member of the leadership council for the California Regional Coalition working to implement the IOM recommendations.
