The Patient as Innovator workshop is an educational forum for patients, providers, payers, and policymakers to discuss innovative ways to create an earlier intersection between patients and developers of medical technologies in order to deliver a more informed, value-driven approach to the innovation of new medical solutions, technologies, and treatments. In today’s healthcare landscape, patients are dramatically more informed, empowered, and financially invested in their health and well-being than ever before. Technology has also made today’s patients as savvy and informed as ever. Additionally, providers, payers, and policymakers are faced with rising costs, increasing demand, and other pressures as healthcare transitions to a value-based system. Thus, it is critical to engage key stakeholders and incorporate their perspectives earlier in development phases in order to ensure that provider organizations deliver healthcare products that are producing maximum value and quality, increasing access, and reducing costs for patients.
