e-patients: The Plausible Promise of Participatory Medicine

e-patients: The Plausible Promise of Participatory Medicine: "Participatory medicine is what Eric Raymond calls a “plausible promise”: something big enough to inspire interest yet achievable enough to inspire confidence.

Reforming health care is too big for most people to grasp; creating spaces for participatory medicine is not. E-patients are already finding, sharing, and mashing up health information online. If you want to take advantage of the internet’s capabilities, find ways to make it easier for people to find and share information that you and your organization hold."
