Consumer Health Literacy for the Information Age
We have entered a time some are calling “the era of patient empowerment”. But how can this be, when individual consumers are rarely represented during decision making within our healthcare systems? How can individuals make stakeholder impact when we don’t have an efficient, effective way to act as one?
The Janie AppleseedSM Network seeks to eliminate this problem. We’re a network of consumers that can act together as a key “consumer stakeholder” in issues related to health and healthcare. We are working to educate and enable consumers to shift into this new position of power.
Can we really do this? Pool our thoughts…combine our voices…create a networked group of people who care about health and wellness from a personal perspective. Can we engage consumers to act as a single entity? Yes, we can!
The Janie Appleseed Network is planting seeds for a grassroots network that will grow to produce a consumer organization that is ready and able to help chart the course toward a healthier future; one that deals effectively with the healthcare challenges of our time.
CONSUMERS COUNT, BUT ONLY WHEN WE’RE COUNTED
The Janie Appleseed Network represents consumers in decision making aimed at improving wellness and healthcare, and also in initiatives about meaningful use of personal health information through technology.
So…If you’re interested in shifting the focus from treating illness to promoting wellness, or if you’re concerned about how personal health information will be electronically shared and how personal privacy will be protected, or if you’re willing to share your thoughts and ideas to improve and develop the health information systems of the future, then join our network today.
