Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
How do you create a wellness program that focuses on behavior change, prevention and increased positive outcomes through healthy social gaming and relevant content? What strategies can you enlist that will not only guarantee higher levels of engagement, but also trigger sustainability and accountability by participants? These topics and more will be covered in the Webinar hosted by AIS on Tuesday October 23.
Mr. Lenihan will use over three decades of healthcare knowledge and first-hand experience with Consumer Directed Healthcare (CDH) to offer his perspective on integrated strategies such as gamification of health factors and "social" connectedness to drive engagement and user satisfaction. “These are no longer just ideas, but have taken form and must be adopted for a program to succeed” says Mr. Lenihan. More importantly, no population is the same, therefore there is “no one size fits all solution” that can be utilized. Customization and real-time data will be the driving force behind the success or failure of this next generation. A generation of wellness and disease prevention.
Additionally, the Webinar will focus on gamification from not only the vendor point of view, but the health plan. The webinar is set to begin at 1PM Tuesday Oct 23, 2012 and will run for 90 minutes. For more information on how to register, please visit the AIS website.
