Here at Occupy Healthcare we have always been about transformation. We know that creating the healthcare system the community deserves is obtainable, and we want to work collectively towards that system. Our team has spent considerable time discussing the importance of stories and their impact on healthcare policy; as we wrote about in a recent post:
Talking about stories is nothing new for this website. Some of us (providers) have even told our own story here on Occupy Healthcare:
Case Study #1: Dr. Foreman
Case Study #2: Dr. Ryan
Case Study #3: Dr. Becker-Schutte
I am happy to announce that through a collaborative relationship with the good folks over at Inspire, we are going to be offering patient stories on Occupy Healthcare. Under the “Our Stories” tab on the home page we will have patient stories about their experience in healthcare. While sometimes these stories will be stand alone; other times these stories will also be accompanied with a blog post that may tackle one of the problems raised in the story.
We are very excited about this new addition to the website. Being that today is our first patient story, head on over to “Our Stories” and read the story of a mom tell us about “Tuberous Sclerosis Complex: A Game of Chance.”
Keep checking back for more from this ongoing series. And many thanks to our new contributor Brian Loew and Inspire for their help!
