Health 2.0, April 2014
Part of the international Health 2.0 movement, this London community is for anyone - technology enthusiasts, developers, students, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, patients, designers, social workers and doctors - interested in innovation in the delivery of healthcare and health related technology.
Tim presented at the session asking the question, "Does giving patients access to their own data actually increase engagement and improve outcomes?". Other speakers at the event were Fiona McKenzie, patient and Patient Insight & Involvement Lead at UCL Partners, Sam Meikle, Director at London Connect and Alex Tarling, a usability and user experience consultant. Time started by acknowledging that we are still in the very early days of being able to answer this question, but that being more transparent with patients about their own health data as actually measuring the clinical outcomes that matter to them resulting from all aspects of care were essential first steps.
