Welcome to Mechanical Patient.
Humans are social beings. We flourish when we are surrounded by strong relationships. The quality of our social circles is often an accurate predictor of health, well-being and happiness. So why then does the current medical model continue to treat patients, and to a lesser extent caregivers, as chemical and mechanical entities?
Mechanical Patient is an exploration of this question. The time to change these models of health is now.
Do you have ideas on what the future models of health should look like? Want to share your thoughts on the importance of social networks to health and well-being? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
