Recently the journal Health Affairs and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) conducted a Twitter chat on the topic of patient engagement in research. The chat was an hour-long moderated question-and-answer session with Susan Sheridan, the director of patient engagement at PCORI. Participants joined the conversation via #PatientHC and talked about what patient engagement looks like and concerns about the privacy of patient health data.
The hosts referenced the journal’s 2013 theme issue on patient engagement as well as three videos produced in partnership with PCORI that illustrate ways patients and providers are incorporating patient engagement in healthcare decisions. An archived version of the Twitter chat is here.
