MedX ePatient Scholars & Student Leaders by @Hurtblogger

The Society for Participatory Medicine is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting the concept of participatory medicine, a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health, and in which providers encourage and value them as full partners.

Our Guiding Principles:

  • To guide patients and caregivers to be actively engaged in their health and health care experiences.
  • To guide health professional practices where patient experience and contribution is an integral goal of excellence.
  • To encourage mutual collaboration among patients, health professionals, caregivers and others allowing them to partner in determining care.

Our members keep the e-patient conversation going all year long...
