We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 6/2 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Susannah Meadows (@susannahmeadows) and the #WTFix Community on the topic of “Patient Stories, Not Just for Story Time Anymore.”
There’s a new conference happening Wednesday June 14th that’s focused fully around the patient and the problems that exist in health care as we know it. The conference is called What’s the Fix? or #WTFix for short.
The great part about the conference is that it costs nothing to attend and they’re making it available for free in person and virtually. Plus, I love their focus on the patient. Knowing that this conference was just around the corner, I reached out to Burt Rosen and his team who are organizing the event and asked if they had someone from their conference that could host the #HITsm chat talking about the patient perspective.
We’re blessed that Susannah Meadows (@susannahmeadows) was willing to host this week’s #HITsm chat. Susannah just published her book “The Other Side of Impossible” which was featured in this New York Times article. Thanks Susannah for sharing your story and hopefully during the #HITsm chat she can inspire others to share theirs. I don’t think we can ever get enough patient perspectives.
We can’t wait to talk patient stories in this week’s #HITsm chat. Here are the questions we’ll be discussing.
T1: Why are patient stories important (and you are a patient too)? #HITsm
T2: Where do you hear patient stories? Do you ever ask your friends or neighbors? #HITsm
T3: What’s the most impactful story you’ve heard #HITsm
T4: What Have you changed as a result of what you’ve heard? #HITsm
T5: How do you create an environment that’s safe for story sharing and doesn’t feel exploitative? #HITsm
Bonus: What are the best and worst conferences for hearing patient stories? #HITsm
