Abstract

Patients’ engagement will transform our healthcare system at every level, from an individual and community level to an organizational, socio-economic, and political level. By encouraging a patient and community’s sense of control over disease, this will give a greater feeling of empowerment over disease, which will only aid further advancement toward new and better treatment of current and future diseases. We believe it is vital to both the economic structure and the performance record of healthcare throughout the world that the healthcare system is changed from its current doctor’s office/hospital model to a model where the community is actively engaged in its own treatment, its own well-being, and in administering new technologies. This change will make our elderly population’s lives easier and more fulfilling while reducing the economic burden on our stressed healthcare system.
