The patient occupies a unique role in the continuum of care, and with healthcare knowledge becoming increasingly accessible to anyone with an internet connection, patients are more informed now than ever before.
But, our world is far from a utopia where information is equal to empowerment – disparities between (and sometimes within) geographic regions, access to facilities and clinical trials, and, increasingly, the ability of the patient or caregiver to navigate the myriad technologies involved in day-to-day care can all affect just how empowered a patient really feels.
By giving more patients unrestricted access to the knowledge and skills they need to take an active role in the management of their disease, and by creating an online environment that nurtures a transparent exchange of ideas, information, and intelligence, we are helping more patients make their voices heard. We believe that a better-informed patient means better outcomes.
