The Partnership with Patients Agenda

4 Mins read

The Partnership With Patients Summit:
The first patient summit in Kansas City supported by crowd-funding, designed using social media with art by Regina Holliday
Patients, Providers and Health Professional from all over the United States will convene in Kansas City, Missouri, from September 21through September 23 to present speeches on Health Information Technology, Patient Safety and Quality and Media and the Message of Patient Advocacy. 

Partnership With Patients

For too long patient input has been an afterthought in health policy.

We are changing that.

This summit focuses on education, networking and partnership—of patients, providers, venders and explains the relationship between government policy and patient advocacy.  Conference attendee’s will suggest ways to promote patient participation, learn about the effect of change and growth in the tech sector on patient advocacy, and use social media to further the voice of the patient in national health policy.

What makes this a must attend event?
The Partnership with Patients Summit is organized completely using the free tools of social media and by a loose confederation of advocates, providers and venders volunteering their time.
The registration page is on eventbrite:
Partnership With Patients partially crowd-funded by both Medstartr and Health Tech Hatch 
The non-profit partner is the Society for Participatory Medicine who is helping fund patient travel scholarships,
Internationally recognized patient speakers such as Dave DeBronkart, Trisha Torrey and ReginaHolliday will be presenting.
