STEPS to Value Podcast Episode #50: The Evolution of the Engaged Patient

If you're listening to this podcast, you already know healthcare delivery has changed significantly over our lifetimes, as well as those of our parents, grandparents, and all the previous generations that are part of our personal and collective history.  Welcome to STEPS to Value, the people, process and technology podcast in which we hear the voices of those working to continue making changes to our care delivery system.  And whether it is a physician, a CIO, a vendor, or government agency or patient, we all play a role in moving forward.  At the root of much of this change is technology in all its forms. 

In this episode, we talk to Dr. David Rhew, Chief Medical Officer and head of healthcare and fitness at Samsung America, just one of many companies leveraging technology in ways that make our healthcare system and the experience of healthcare better.  How must our systems adapt to accommodate for the fact that healthcare is no longer a passive experience for the patient, who now has the technology at hand to contribute data to this experience?  How do we keep patients engaged and how do we adapt technology to help make that happen.
