In this episode of Rise of The Patient, I interview Associate Professor Kevin J. Leonard to discuss Patient Destiny and the importance of collaboration and patient access. Guest Bio Kevin Leonard received his PhD from the Joint Doctoral Program in Montreal where he specialized in Statistics and Information Systems Theory for Business. He has two primary areas of research: (i) the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) along with researching issues pertaining to the development and implementation of patient-focused information technology (Personal Health Records or PHRs); (ii) the creation and implementation of metrics for performance measurement of the Information Technology (IT) investment within healthcare. Kevin has Crohn’s disease and has had frequent and extensive interactions with the healthcare system. He is a strong believer in patient empowerment and the critical role patients play in managing their care in consultation and collaboration with their health providers. Through Patient Destiny, Kevin is working to promote the recognition of “patients as partners in their healthcare”.
