Dave deBronkart, known on the internet as e-Patient Dave, is the author of the highly rated Let Patients Help: A Patient Engagement Handbook. After beating stage IV kidney cancer in 2007 he became a blogger, health policy advisor and international keynote speaker. An accomplished speaker in his professional life before cancer, he is today the best-known spokesman for the patient engagement movement, attending over 200 conferences and policy meetings internationally in the past two years, including testifying in Washington for patient access to the medical record under Meaningful Use.

A co-founder and board member of the Society for Participatory Medicine, e-Patient Dave has appeared in Time, U.S. News, USA Today, Wired, MIT Technology Review, and the HealthLeaders cover story “Patient of the Future,” and his writings have been published in the British Medical Journal, the Society for General Internal Medicine Forum, and the conference journal of the American Society for Clinical Oncology. In 2009 HealthLeaders named him and his doctor to their annual list of “20 People Who Make Healthcare Better.”

Dave’s TED Talk Let Patients Help has gone viral, in the top half of the most viewed TED Talks of all time, approaching a half million views; volunteers have added subtitles in 26 languages, indicating the global appeal of his message, and in 2012 the National Library of Medicine announced that it’s capturing his blog in its History of Medicine Division.
