In an effort to pull the pieces of the conversation together, a collaborative discussion board was composed. MCCFI’s Storify board participants answered the question “what does the patient of the future need?” from various social media platforms.  Contributors to the conversation came from healthcare organizations, professionals and enthusiasts. Each post provided an insight as to how the individual foresees the needs of patients of the future, as well as created a platform to build and share ideas.

In order to create a greater and more concentrated conversation the ‘Patient of the Future’ TweetChat will be held on June 5. We hope of this Tweetchat is to involve various perspectives, provide a platform for knowledge sharing and house a community of healthcare enthusiasts. A recap of the #POTF Tweetchat will be posted on Storify at the end of the day June 5th.
