I just learned that the Hartford radio program where I’ll appear Sunday morning is available as “listen live” online. Here’s a quick note from yesterday’s announcement email:
On the next Health Care Matters: Letting patients help!
Join HealthCare Matters hosts Elliot Joseph and Rebecca Stewart, along with special guest “e-Patient Dave.” Dave deBronkart is a blogger, international speaker and stage four cancer survivor who doubles as an expert in patient engagement.
How do we engage patients more in their care? And how do we make sure it’s helpful? Together, we will tackle the toughest topics – and your questions.
Join the conversation this Sunday at 11 am Eastern, on WTIC NewsTalk 1080. Or listen online.
Among other things we’ll be discussing the OpenNotes project, the year-long study in which patients got access to their doctors’ actual “visit notes” – the things they write in your medical record. As I’ve often blogged, counter to some fears, just about everyone involved loved it and didn’t want to quit. That’s important, because as we patients become increasingly responsible for carrying the ball in medicine, we gotta have the information.
