Ms. Petersen will present her talk “Patient Advocacy in Health IT: Where It Has Been, and Where It Is Going”. 


Abstract: As we enter the third decade of the 21st century, patient involvement in health care and health IT has moved out of its infancy to become a full-fledged movement. Roles for patients have proliferated, and it’s not always clear how to effectively work with them. This talk will clarify common forms of patient involvement such as patient advocacy, review what engaged patients are doing today, and explore upcoming opportunities for engagement. 

The colloquium will be hosted on and recorded by Zoom. Details are listed below. The date and time are Tuesday, November 30, 2021, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
