Wellbe.me, the inventor of the cloud-based Patient Guidance System™, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Nancy B. Finn on "The Empowered Patient of the 21st Century - How Technology Enables Good Medical Practice."
Madison, WI (I-Newswire) October 1, 2013 - This presentation will present a profile of empowered, e-patients, their expectations and challenges when confronted with medical issues and have to deal with the medical establishment, and the tools that they use to communicate and collaborate with their health care providers. Patients are looking for compassionate, caring providers who are comfortable engaging with them in open two-way communication. They expect full information at the point of care so that in partnership with their providers they can make appropriate choices and good decisions.
Today's e-patient is used to constant communication delivered in sound bites from a variety of media. They use email to communicate with their colleagues and business associates, access various online networks and databases in order to connect with others, use a variety of health apps on their smartphones, and find needed information on the web. They are concerned with their health, but are typically confused and overwhelmed with the complexity of health care. The presentation will review the tools that e-patients and savvy providers use to provide the patient-centered care that we are all trying to achieve including: digital health records, email, patient portals, health information exchange, smartphones, online resources and telemedicine technology.
