Patient Perspectives

8:45-9:30 AM Keynote 1: The Future of Patient Engagement: Informed Patients Sharing the Work

  • "e-Patient Dave" deBronkart, Founding Co-chair, Society for Participatory Medicine and HL7 FHIR Patient Empowerment Workgroup
  • For far too long, patients have been relegated to the role of "humble supplicants," as BMJ editor Dr. Tessa Richards brilliantly stated. She was excluded from participating in the tumor board's discussions about treatments for her own cancer. In the past, "patient engagement" often amounted to simply persuading patients to unquestionably follow medical guidance within a paternalistic system, assuming that patients were incapable of handling the truth and would not know how to make decisions about their own care. But the times have changed. This keynote will call us to learn to listen to patients' voices and work with them as thinking co-producers. The key lesson to remember is that the future is unfolding before us, whether we acknowledge it or not.

9:30-9:45 AM Q&A with audience moderated by Dr. Yuri Quintana

  • Dr. Eric Perakslis, PhD, Chief Scientific and Data Officer, Pluto Health; Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, IMIDomics
  • Approximately half of Americans lack a dedicated primary care doctor resulting in significant gaps in preventative and primary care for these populations. While it is well known that the many cancers are managed well if caught early, the incidence of people that have never had a mammogram, colonoscopy or lung cancer screening is highest in the most vulnerable subsets of our citizens. Despite the promise of digital health solutions to aid these populations, most digital-centric approaches have failed. In this talk, we will discuss hybrid ‘click-and-mortar’ approaches to preventative cancer care currently being piloted and will discuss the potential benefits and risks of hybrid digital preventative care.
