The Incidental Finding
Routine shoulder x-ray, Jan. 2, 2007
“Your shoulder
will be fine …
but there's
something
in your lung”
Multiple tumors in both lungs
Where’s This From??
Classic
Stage IV,
Grade 4
Renal Cell
Carcinoma

Median Survival:
24 weeks
After the shock
you’re left with the question:
What are my options?
What can I do?
Get engaged.
Get it in gear.
Do everything you can.
E-Patient Activity 2:
“My doctor prescribed ACOR”
(Community of my patient peers)
ACOR members told me:
• This is an uncommon disease –
get to a hospital that does a lot of cases
• There’s no cure, but HDIL-2 sometimes works.
– When it does, about half the time it’s permanent
– The side effects are severe.
• Don’t let them give you anything else first
• Here are four doctors in your area who do it
– And one of them was at my hospital
Surgery & Interleukin worked.
Target Lesion 1 – Left Upper Lobe
Baseline: 39x43 mm
50 weeks: 20x12 mm
Question:
How can it be
that the most useful
and relevant and
up-to-the-minute information
can exist outside of
traditional channels?
Because of the Web,
Patients Can Connect to Information
and Each Other (and other Providers)
Dr. Lindberg:
400 years
“If I read two journal articles every night,
at the end of a year I’d be 400 years behind.”
It’s not humanly possible to keep up.
The lethal lag time:
2-5 years
The time it takes after successful research is completed
before publication is completed and the article’s been read.
During this time,
people who might have benefitted can die.
Patients have all the time in the world
to look for such things.
Death by Googling:
Not.
(Dr. Gunther Eysenbach, Europe: 0 deaths found in a three year search)
Compare with
“To Err is Human”
(98,000 deaths/yr
Nov 1999)
“It may be
more dangerous
not to google
your condition.”
“These conclusions
are no more anti-doctor
or anti-medicine
than Copernicus and Galileo
were anti-astronomer.”
Patients can simply contribute
more today than in the past.

When does
autonomy
become
appropriate?
“How can patients participate if they can’t
see what I see?” – Dr. Danny Sands
What happens
when patients see
their doctors’
notes?
• 99% of patients wanted to continue
• 17-26% of docs preferred not to…
– But when given the chance to stop, none
did
• 85-89% of patients said availability of
open notes would influence their
choice of providers and health plans
Urgency:
The Demographic
Crunch
Half of everyone who’s
ever been 65 is alive today
Population today:
~7.0 billion
End of World War II: ~2.3 billion
My classmate Jay
What if
the data
in the system
is wrong?
Your mother’s physicians
cannot perform
to the of their ability
Your mother’s physicians
cannot perform
to the top of their ability
if the facts they’re given
are wrong
Who has the most at stake
with the accuracy,
completeness and
availability
of the medical record?
Please:
Let
Patients
Help.
