Dr. Danny Sands is one of the co-founders of our Society for Participatory Medicine, a great primary care physician, and a real thought leader who’s been doing this modern stuff for twenty years. (He co-authored the first journal paper on how to do patient-clinician email without ruining the doc’s life – in 1998!)

Last month at the Patient Engagement Summit in San Diego, Healthcare IT News recorded this hallway interview with him. I’ve never seen it described better! He doesn’t just talk about the idea, he gets into some common misconceptions. Share widely!

We’re thrilled that other SPM members spoke there too: board member Kyra Bobinet was the other keynote, and member Alicia Staley led a session. This is one sign that an organization’s thought leadership is taking hold.
