PatientWisdom is a new digital platform that efficiently captures, curates, and shares patient perspectives to improve the experience and delivery of care for both the patient and provider.  Based on stories patients share, PatientWisdom creates the inSIGHT Summary, an at-a-glance view to help a care team know more about what is important to the individual patient in advance of their visit. 

Having this information is especially helpful to providers who wish to better understand what patients are hoping to get out of their visits and what is most important in their personal lives: quality of remaining years of life, independence, comfort, etc.  Awareness of this can help providers plan the visit or more effectively engage the patient and family immediately upon walking into the room: for example, knowing the patient hopes to avoid chemo or surgery or if they would prefer an aggressive treatment approach.
