The good patient of the future

The good patient of the future: " will:
* Bring lists of questions to the consultation and will expect answers in clear terms
* Know how involved they want to be in decisions about their health care; most will choose to share decisions with their healthcare providers
* Have free access to their health record on paper or through electronic means and will use it or share it as they see fit
* Request and receive a second opinion whenever they face a major diagnosis or decisions about treatment
* Use telephone, internet, and other forms of communication to complement personal visits with members of the healthcare team"
I wonder what the good doctor of the future will look like !
