The E-Patient

Jan Martens at shared a more than interesting post with me. He mentioned Maarten Lens-Fitzgerald who should be considered one of the best examples of e-patients in the world. Why?

This is the blog of the journey I started on June 4th 2008 when I found out I had a tumor between my lungs. Its a journal for all to read, to stay informed and for me to share.

  • his X-rays are online
  • he blogs about his ‘journey’
  • he twitters about his experiences inside and outside the hospital
  • he makes pictures with his cellphone and puts these online through mobypicture
  • he creates movies inside the hospital and he is interviewed by visitors
  • you can make an appointment using a google online agenda
