Empowered patient

Armed with a greater degree of knowledge about their lifestyle and conditions, people are taking a more central role in determining when they interact with the healthcare system and how their care is delivered. Patients arm their selves with technologies and social communities that help them to gather valuable advice or self-diagnose so they do not have to visit a doctor anymore. This leads to better prepared patients during their consultations.

Next week I will give you two examples of this empowered patient trend.
