Liz Salmi is Senior Strategist of Dissemination for OpenNotes at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In this role, Liz helps hospitals and health systems understand the changing nature of patient-clinician communication in the digital age, and interpret and implement research emerging from the “open notes” movement. After being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor at age 29, Liz immediately put her digital communications skills to use by blogging, chronicling her daily symptoms, and seeing how much she could learn from her online patient portal. Today, her research areas of interest include studying how healthcare professionals and patients are connecting through digital tools and joining as partners in research. Liz leads the Brain Cancer Quality of Life Collaborative, a multi-stakeholder group dedicated to advancing science and improving the quality of life for people with malignant brain tumors. Liz was named e-Patient of the Year by the Society for Participatory Medicine.
