The President's Cancer Panel is looking for ways to improve connected health for cancer patients. What are your recommendations?
Like many cancer patients, you are part of connected health: By reading this blog, you are using technology like the Internet, computers and smartphones to access information about a disease or patient experience.
This year the President’s Cancer Panel workshop series is addressing various aspects of connected health. Their third workshop on July 9, titled The Connected Cancer Patient: Vision for the Future and Recommendations for Action, will be open to the public (see agenda and attendees).
Cancer patient advocates Corrie Painter, Stacey Tinianov and I will be participating in the July President’s Cancer Panel Workshop. To help gather input for the event, we will be guests on the Healthcare Leadership (#hcldr) tweetchat Tuesday, July 7, at 8:30 p.m. EDT. The questions we will be addressing are:
You can read more about the chat and connected cancer patients on the hcldr blog at The Connected Cancer Patient: Future Vision and Recommendations. There's a primer on participating in tweetchats on the #LCSM Chat website (just substitute the hashtag #hcldr for #lcsm in the instructions). I hope you’ll join us!
You can also leave your comments here. I will bring any comments left by 10 p.m. EDT July 8 with me to the workshop as input for the session.
