This book is written through the lens of patients, caregivers, healthcare representatives and families, highlighting new models of interaction between providers and patients and what people would like in their healthcae experience. It will envision a new kind of healthcare system that recommends on how/why providers must connect to patients and families using HIT, as well as suggestions about new kinds of HIT capabilities and how they would redesign systems of care if they could.
