Changing the face of Health Activism through Technology

Changing the face of Health Activism through Technology | Health 2.0 Mumbai | Scoop.it
WEGO Health would like to extend a big thanks to Nate Osit for hosting this week’s #HAChat focusing on the power of Health Technology. Nate describes himself as “just your average Health IT geek” and we couldn’t think of a better Health Activist to lead an engaging discussion about technology’s impact on Health Activism.

 

Produceconsume: #HAchat Tech moves health activism out from behind the curtain. Reveals what can be done.

 

Technology has had an incredible impact on healthcare in terms of the connections it has fostered within patient communities. Patients can connect with others living with their condition across the globe. Patients with conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis can form relationships where they cannot in real life (IRL). The internet has given patients the power of anonymity – allowed people to reach out to others without fear of discrimination and stigma that is all too common in society. And while these connections are being made, information is being generated and shared all over the virtual world, building a vast library that is available at the click of a mouse. All of these conversations that we’re having – every blog post, Facebook note, or forum discussion is adding to a collective set of knowledge from which we can all benefit. The availability of information via technology puts patients and the healthcare industry on more even ground. While you still may not have the knowledge of your doctor or physician, you have access to information that will allow you to engage in a dialogue with your doctor or your healthcare team, rather than a one-sided conversation.
