Stanford Medicine X conference to focus on creating positive change in health care – Stanford Medical Center Report

Medicine X, Stanford Universitys premier conference on emerging health care technology and patient-centered medicine, will return to campus Sept. 15-17.

This years conference, which will be held at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, will focus on the responsibilities of health care citizenship and how individuals can take action to improve health care in the United States.

Medicine X 2017 will focus on how we can take action to create the change that we want to see in the health care system and move beyond ideas into action, saidLawrence Chu, MD, professor of anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine at Stanford and founder and director of Medicine X. With the current uncertainty in the future of health care, its important to stop and consider how each of us might work to create a new culture of caring in health care that doesnt exist right now.

Medicine X aims to bring together everyone who plays a role in health care researchers, patients, providers, designers, technologists and policy leaders and encourage them to work together to build a framework for health care transformation, Chu said. This framework, known as Everyone Included, is a trademark of Stanford Medicine X and was co-developed with a diverse group of health care stakeholders over the past seven years at the conference.

In January during President Obamas farewell speech, he talked about how his future role was going to be as a citizen, Chu said. That inspired me to think about how we, as individuals, might consider this role in terms of health care. We hope this conference will give people both the inspiration and the tools and resources they need to take action and create change.
