Christina Farr’s TEDx Talk Asks “What If the Patient Knows Best?”

One of my favorite healthcare IT journalists is Christina Farr. She’s skipped around a few publications over the years, but she’s currently writing for CNBC about large tech companies like (Apple, Alphabet(Google), etc) that are getting into the healthcare and biotech world. Plus, she covers a lot of healthcare IT startup companies.

Christina Farr recently gave a TEDx talk at TEDx Oslo where she shared her perspective on the move from a doctor-dominated healthcare model to an empowered patient model where patient and doctor work together to find the best care solution together.

If you care about patients, take 12 minutes to listen to Christina’s TEDx talk embedded below and think about what her message means for you. It’s a good one.

  • Healthcare organisations are certainly ones that are stuck in old habits. However, this isn’t how care should be, with modern day technology we can be so much better than that. Driving patient engagement and satisfaction should be a priority and the patient experience should definitely be a key focus. StoriiCare is a person-centred software that puts the patients at the heart of everything they do and is the first company to consider outcome driven results. This is the way forward.
