Carlos Rizo MD's Summary
Carlos Rizo is a physician, medical futurist, patient activist, adventure sportsman, and advocate for personal healthcare, who also holds fellowships in Consumer Health Informatics and eHealth Innovation.
As a result of a spectacular accident in 2006, he became an expert in participatory and collaborative decision making models of patient care during life-threatening conditions. By tracking his spinal cord injury, retrieving his personal health information, and integrating it with the best available evidence from the Web, Carlos found answers not available in medical textbooks or expert medical minds, which enabled him to recover completely.
Being a patient now defines everything Carlos does. He has ample experience in research, global health systems, new media, social and open innovation, online collaboration, Internet startups and entrepreneurship. As a clinician with deep experience of the healthcare system, Carlos brings visionary and passionate insight to understanding needs at all levels, from the individual to entire health systems.
Using a range of digital tools to track, analyze and manage his health condition and the incorporation of traditional and social evidence gathered from a world-wide-web of medical and patient experts, he follows state-of-the-art, unique and practical approaches to data gathering, evidence integration and analytical methods to ensure that you benefit from the best patient focused data collection and evidence integration experience in the market.
