Walmart greets you; Starbucks personalizes your coffee cup to shape your experience.  You trust the reviews on Expedia/Tripadvisor.  These organizations seem to balance standardization and personalization fairly well.  What’s the last time your health care provider said:

  • How can I help you today?
  • Let’s discuss options, and what fits with your values and health goals
  • Here’s your health information, let’s review to ensure you have everything you need to make an informed decision

Clinicians, researchers, patients and care givers, all have a view on why this doesn’t translate into the health system….what’s yours?

Guest Speaker: Dr. Anne Snowdon, RN, BScN, MSc, PhD, Chair, International Centre for Health Innovation and Leadership Ivey Business School, Western University, London, Ontario

Dr. Anne Snowdon is Chair of the International Centre for Health Innovation at the Ivey Business School. The Centre’s mandate is to build health system leadership capacity. Dr. Snowdon’s research includes looking at the role of engaged consumers as agents of change and reform to health systems. According to Dr. Snowdon, engaged patients who understand their role in the decision-making process and demand innovative treatments will better comply with the treatments prescribed for them. Dr. Snowdon’s first-hand experience as a health practitioner and as a researcher has led her to conclude that bottom-up demand-creation and greater involvement of patients in their treatment will drive change and force reform of the financial and system models of health care delivery around the world.
