“In Need of Diagnosis, Inc., Non-Profit Organization”   Leave a comment

(Recommended through NIH Undiagnosed and Rare Diseases program) I found this link that I thought was quite interesting considering this week’s seminar on patient empowerment:

In Need Of Diagnosis, Inc., a  Non-Profit Organization based here in Orlando, FL.

They make an interesting point on the opening page:

“Though the United States economy is characterized as a free market system, this is not the case with the medical system.  The patient has little say regarding the type of services made available.  This needs to change.  The patient must become a knowledgeable consumer of medical services.  Collectively they can make positive changes.  The public needs to make their interest in the matter of more timely and accurate diagnosis known.  Only then will they be able to influence how public health dollars are spent.”
