Transparency in Healthcare, One Note at a Time

Apps. AI. New tech in medicine. #yawn.
What if the most effective way to change the culture of medicine didn’t need tech and used a resource nearly 50 years old? Welcome to OpenNotes, the movement to make healthcare transparent by giving people access to their medical providers’ notes via online patient portals.
In this panel focused on the risks and benefits of culture change in medicine, attendees will meet the leaders changing this culture from the inside. A health policy nerd rewriting rules on transparency; a physician who believes patient engagement is key to a humane, sustainable health system; punk rocker turned cancer patient advising one of the nation’s oldest teaching hospitals; and a pediatrician-blogger/podcaster capturing the transformation of medicine in real time. ​
