About the organization
Basic details : The Society for Participatory Medicine is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting the concept of participatory medicine, a movement in which networked patients shift from being mere passengers to responsible drivers of their health, and in which providers encourage and value them as full partners.
Our Guiding Principles:
To guide patients and caregivers to be actively engaged in their health and health care experiences.
To guide health professional practices where patient experience and contribution is an integral goal of excellence.
To encourage mutual collaboration among patients, health professionals, caregivers and others allowing them to partner in determining care.
The Society seeks to bring together all of the stakeholders in healthcare (patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, payers, and others) to encourage collaboration, communication and cooperation that will foster provider/patient engagement, patient empowerment and education.
Mission : To catalyze collaborative partnerships across the continuum of care to optimize health and health care.
Vision : We envision a time when patients become full and valued partners in collaborative relationships with health professionals to achieve better health and wellbeing.
