Patient Education and Physician Leadership with John Whyte, Chief Medical Officer at WebMD
We all know a family member, friend, or a patient self-diagnosed with the help from search engines. Although some clinicians roll their eyes when patients arrive armed with information from online research, the Internet has opened the door to health education. And we know that more engaged, informed patients have better clinical outcomes.
John Whyte, MD, MPH, is chief medical officer at WebMD, and leads the development of strategic partnerships that create meaningful change around important public health issues. He has written extensively, creating award-winning health content for TV and the web, and developed numerous initiatives addressing diversity in clinical trials.
In this interesting discussion with host Mike Sacopulos, Whyte talks about his career path and provides a behind-the-scenes look at WebMD which provides an important service by presenting quality health information to our citizens.
