On This Week in Health Innovation, Thursday, May 2nd 2019 my very special guest is health economist, published author, popular keynote speaker and consumer health vvangelist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn.

In this episode Jane reveals the insights reflected in her new book 'HealthConsuming: From Health Consumer to Health Citizen' and unbundles the seemingly subtle but profound difference between 'consumption' and prident navigation and access of the health system as a 'citizen' with rights and obligations.

We'll discuss Jane's thesis of how health consumers in the U.S. might or can emerge as 'health citizens' where healthcare is a civil right, with privacy protections for personal health information (PHI), and the digital health innovations supporting a healthcare everywhere (and for everyone) model.
