…[When patients] participate more actively in the process of

medical care, we can create a new healthcare system with

higher quality services, better outcomes, lower costs, fewer

medical mistakes, and happier, healthier patients. We must

make this the new gold standard of healthcare quality and the

ultimate goal of all our improvement efforts:

Not better hospitals.

Not better physician practices.

Not more sophisticated electronic medical systems.

Happier, healthier patients.

Definitely a point there, Shikha.

One example of what you said is this forum itself. I am sure many have found a helping hand here.

Shikha thanks for sharing this. It keeps my head up many times when I need confidence.


Shikha rightly said - This forum is an example of E-patient where all the patients are themselves opening up. It helps a lot
