YDMV Interviewed as an e-Patient

I was happy to participate in a Medsider.com conversation about e-Patients. I am still not sure what an e-Patient is but I jumped in with Scott Nelson moderating e-Patient DavdeBronkart and Hugo Campos none the less.

I think that we in the Diabetes Online Community share issues with other online patient communities. In this case the issue we talked about was access to our individual medical data.

I think it is everyone mutual benefit if we take the time to learn about the issues others face and honor their struggles without offering trite solutions. Finding areas where we share concerns present opportunities to share insights on how to work to common goals.

I hope I did the DOC proud. The full round table conversation is on Medsider.com
