#AZoncology Summit another fascinating day discussing Patient Engagement and Putting Patients in control of their own Health and Data

Yesterday I was in DC and had the opportunity to talk with people about some cutting developments around Genome Analytics before heading to the reception for the Astra Zeneca’s #AZoncology Summit.

It was great to meet people from the Society for Participatory Medicine and other organizations that are working to improve the well being of people living with chronic health issues. It was also gratifying to talk about the tremendous technical challenges we have overcome at Medyear.com in building a Consumer-Mediated Exchange that puts Patients at the centre and gives them control over their health data and let them share pieces of their health information with whomever they choose.

Today those discussions continue at the summit which is being held at the Medimmune headquarters in Gaithersburg. It should be a fascinating day. Watch out for more posts during the day.
