Speaker Aneesh Chopra shares his view of consumers taking a more active role in navigating the health care delivery system, empowered with greater access to their own data and a growing number of apps and navigation support services that can help them make better decisions at each step of their care journey.  He reviews recent efforts to open up data across EHRs, payers, and the government to foster a growing ecosystem of tech-enabled services that are tackling waste and boosting care quality.
