The Connected Cancer Patient: Future Vision and Recommendations

This is sure to be a fantastic Twitter chat.

Growing evidence shows that connected health technologies can make healthcare more effective and efficient by electronically connecting patients to clinicians, patients to other patients, and clinicians to clinicians. Still, it is not yet clear what a truly connected health system of the future looks like. If you are curious or interested, or even curiously interested in this topic, you won’t want to miss the next #HCLDR chat on July 7.

Connected - HeatherBlog post by Janet Freeman-Daily, Corrie Painter, and Stacey Tinianov

The March 14 #HCLDR Chat “Data Sharing for Research & Care” was so helpful in gathering inputs for the March 26 President’s Cancer Panel (PCP) workshop that the PCP decided they wanted another tweetchat prior to the July 9 workshop.  The PCP 2014-15 workshop series, Connected Health: Improving Patients’ Engagement and Activation for Cancer-Related Health Outcomes, aims “to answer timely, critical questions about connected health strategies and technologies and their potential to engage and activate individuals and patients, with the ultimate goal of improving cancer-related outcomes.”

The July 9 PCP Workshop in Chicago will focus on “The Connected Cancer Patient: Vision for the Future and Recommendations for Action.”  The agenda and participants for the July workshop are available here.  Three of the workshop participants — Janet Freeman-Daily (@JFreemanDaily), Corrie Painter (@corrie_painter
