  4. E-patients <br />are engaged, empowered, equipped and expert in their own medical care or that of their families members. They use the tools of health 2.0 and communication technology to insure better health outcomes in their personal lives. <br />
  5. Patients 2.0: Where E-patients meet Health 2.0<br />Empowered and engaged patients use the tools of Health 2.0 to create better health outcomes for themselves and the greater community.<br />
  6. I can tell you something about stories: They drive engagement. What we don't typically consider (and this is why stories are so controversial) is that stories become legitimized by an audience, not a storyteller. That's why some stakeholders resist - they don't want to legitimize a story, a rad idea or tribute or pain, by giving it a platform. Enter the Web, the blog, the phone, the community, the e-mail thread we're on.Stories. You know them when you see them. And sometimes you need to see them to believe them. This is tribal vernacular; animal instinct. –Christine Kraft<br />Patients 2.0<br />We tell amazing stories and we can <br />change the world.<br />
