What do the terms Learning Healthcare Systems, Participatory Medicine,  Evidence-based Medicine, Narrative Medicine, Patient-centered Medicine, and Health 2.0 mean? What is their connection to each other, to User-Driven Healthcare, and, most importantly, to real people—healthcare providers and healthcare consumers?  In this paper, the author presents current definitions of these abstractions to begin to compile a glossary of terms, a lexicon of sorts, for all stakeholders in the emerging field of User-Driven Healthcare.
