Did you know that 80% of medical visits can be diagnosed with the patient's story?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how prepared do you feel to share your health story? What about that of your loved ones?
Six months ago, I don't think that I could have claimed to be able to easily share my family's health story. I know the basics, but I don't know that I could list off all of the medications and health conditions from when Benjamin was younger. I remember the date of my C-section for obvious reasons, but was that appendectomy in 1993 or 1994? Which antibiotic was I allergic to?
Being able to share your health (hi)story is really important, and CareSync is excited to announce the first CareSync Learning webinar of 2014, with a very special guest host, Dr. Leana Wen.
Date: Wednesday, January 29, 2014
Time: 8:00 PM ET
Dr. Wen is an attending physician and Director of Patient-Centered Care Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at George Washington University. Inspired by her own childhood illness and then her mother's long battle with cancer, Dr. Wen is passionate about guiding patients to advocate for better care. She is the author of the best-selling book, When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests.
During this free webinar, Dr. Wen will share her research, secrets, and tips on how patients can help improve their healthcare experience through the sharing of information.
By the time we wrap up, you'll learn to:
- Share your healthcare story with doctors
- Avoid unnecessary and often risky medical tests and procedures
- Save money by avoiding unnecessary medical tests
- Leverage your CareSync account to help you accomplish your health storytelling goals
The webinar for anybody who is interested in learning more about being a more engaged and empowered patient through the sharing of information and is free to attend.
We are inspired by Dr. Wen each and every day, and are so grateful for the opportunity to share her wisdom with you!
And if that's not enough, two lucky webinar attendees will win a $99 CareSync Plus subscription; that's all you need to have your complete health story--and we do the work!
Don't miss this unique opportunity to be educated and inspired during the first CareSync Learning session of 2014.
