Ishani Ganguli, MD Dave deBronkart (e-Patient Dave)Dave, better known on the internet as "e-Patient Dave," may be the leading spokesperson for the e-Patient movement -- e-patients are Empowered, Engaged, Equipped, Enbabled. A high tech execuitve and online community leader for many years, he was diagnosed in 2007 with Stage IV kidney cancer, with a median survival of just 24 weeks. He used the internet in every way possible to partner with his care team and beat this unbeatable disease. Today he is well.In 2008 he discovered the e-patient movement, and began studying, blogging and speaking at conferences, and in 2009 was elected founding co-chair of the new Society for Participatory Medicine. He was a leading voice in Washington for new federal regulations to require that patients and families have access to their electronic medical records, and is now engaged full time in speaking and advocating for patient engagement. He's appeared in Time, U.S. News and the HealthLeaders magazine cover story "Patient of the Future." In December 2009, HealthLeaders named him -- and his doctor -- to their annual list of "20 People Who Make Healthcare Better," and in 2010 he released his first book: Laugh, Sing, and Eat Like a Pig: How an empowered patient beat Stage IV cancer (and what healthcare can learn from it). Follow Dave on Twitter: @ePatientDave
