Flip the Clinic
This program received support from the Foundation between 2013 and 2017.
Reimagining the medical encounter between patients and care providers.
The traditional doctor's visit is ripe for reinvention.
Inspired by efforts of Khan Academy to “flip the classroom,” Flip the Clinic is an open experiment working to fundamentally change the nature of the doctor-patient visit, and improve patient understanding, provider efficiency and health outcomes.
Created by a team at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation led by former Wired editor Thomas Goetz, it is a source of ideas for new tools, technologies and strategies to empower people to be better informed when they walk into the doctor's office - and better equipped to improve their health when they walk out the door.
