An East Coast contingent of the e-patients group will be in Boston on Monday and Tuesday, speaking and listening at the Connected Health symposium.

I’m going to present the Pew Internet Project‘s latest data on social media and how the participatory Web is creating opportunities for participatory medicine. Danny Sands and “e-Patient Dave” deBronkart will talk about “Illness in the age of ‘e’: A case study of participatory medicine.” I’ve been told there will be a roving microphone in the ampitheater, so I’m hoping a discussion erupts on either the grand themes (“Who Provides, Who Decides, Who Pays: Consumers, Clinicians and Business Models in the Connected Care Era”) or whatever else pops up. What would YOU ask if you had the chance to question the lineup of speakers?
