A boatload of preparation went into the 2013 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit -- not least was compiling the sentiments from our 10 Patient Voices Winners into a brand new video expressing "What Patients Really Want."
Remember, the three questions we asked you all to consider this year were:
- What improved health outcomes in diabetes matter most to you and why?
- How do you want diabetes technology to fit into your daily life?
- What are your biggest concerns about the changes in healthcare reimbursement for diabetes and why?
Huge thanks to all the entrants in this contest, and congrats to our 10 fantastic winners whom we were thrilled to host at Stanford University last week!
And special thanks to technology blogger/type 1 Scott Hanselman, for lending his amazing voice to this video.
Now, y'all please watch the video and tell us what you think:
