Patient Leader

All of us will be patients some day. What can we do to ensure that we get the best medical care when we fall ill? Information Therapy – the right information at the right time for the right person – can be powerful medicine because patients are the largest untapped healthcare resource . Information Therapy can help to heal a sick healthcare system – and everyone has an active role to play in making this a reality! Our book, Using Information Therapy to Put Patients First is now online at www.thebestmedicalcare.com ! Information Therapy helps patients save money on medical care by Promoting SelfCare and helping them to do as much for themselves as they can Helping them with Evidence-Based Guidelines , so that they can ask for the right medical treatment that they need – no more and no less Helping them with Veto Power, so they can say No to medical care they don’t need, thus preventing overtesting and unnecessary surgery . Our focus areas now are: Encouraging health insurance companies to invest in patient education Advocating information therapy – www.informationtherapy.in Setting up a national network of patient education centers Our goals for the future: Every hospital should have a patient education resource center Every doctor should have their own website !
