If you have not read the e-Patient White Paper, you do not understand the future of medicine. Being an e-Patient is beyond being empowered. The subtitle, How they can help us heal healthcare, describes the potential for a revolution of change.
Now comes the Journal of Participatory Medicine to fill a gap in journals which acknowledge the active role of the patient in current medical practice. While other journals, such as, the Journal of Medical Internet Research, publish articles on patient participation in health care and social media, but a single journal devoted to this topic will be a welcome addition and make the topic more officially sanctioned as a valid field of medical study. The editorial board is very impression and lends an important boost to this new journal.
