Digital health and precision medicine hold great promise to connect patients with their care teams and drive greater participatory health practice and shared decision making. In this Stanford Medicine X session, a clinician and patient with chronic conditions will discuss the evolving role of technology in the health care journey: how might it be used to move patients beyond engagement in their own care to new care models that enable more autonomy and stronger partnerships with care teams.

Key takeaways:

  • Many patients with chronic conditions want greater health care autonomy and expect technology to help support them in this wish.
  • Data parity, interoperability and transparency are important considerations in building trust and usability for end-users.
  • Technology should meet people where they are: consider all spectrums of users.

One of the best ways learn is to network with your peers. This session provides an opportunity for attendees to meet with morning speakers and dive deeper into specific topics.

Here's how it works:

Speakers from the morning sessions will be stationed at different tables in the room. Attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one or in groups with individual speakers.

Network, share and learn in this interactive environment.

This talk will focused on key lessons learned--personal and professional - from in-depth interviews with patients and caregivers for the book, Participatory Healthcare: A Person-Centered Approach to Healthcare Transformation. It will especially highlight insights about creating great patient experiences and ways to use technology effectively in that process.

Key takeaways:

  • Patients want both high-tech AND high-touch medical care.
  • If you aren't focused on convenience for patients and consumers, you're missing the boat.
  • Listening to patient stories about their care is healing for patients, for staff, for institutions.
