E-Patient Dave's presentation, "Let patients help: The most under-used member of the health care team", closed the Summit with a bang and a standing ovation.
Dave deBronkart, a survivor of Stage IV liver cancer, may be the leading spokesperson for the e-Patient movement. E-Patients are Empowered, Engaged, Equipped and Enabled and Expert. They know more about their own health, and their health care experience, than any other member of their care team. Dave shared his own story about becoming an e-Patient, and left us inspired and informed about how to “let patients help” improve health care.
