Patient engagement is the key to healthcare reform and without a plan to engage patients hospital and health system reform strategies will fail.
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Meaningful Use, Accountable Care and population health management will falter unless patients are at the center of care delivery models, engaged, activated and equipped to self-manage. Patient engagement is the key to healthcare reform and without a plan to engage patients hospital and health system reform strategies will fail.
MEDSEEK, the provider of the healthcare industry’s only enterprise strategic patient engagement and management solutions, will be joined by Microsoft to host a free webinar to examine the role of the patient in the healthcare reform strategies of hospitals and health systems, and examine the white paper co-authored by MEDSEEK and Microsoft, The 360-Degree Patient Experience. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday April 18 at 2pm ET/11am PT. In addition to participating in the webinar discussion, attendees will receive complimentary digital copies of the 360 Patient Experience white paper and the slides on the topics presented.
Travis Moore, Vice-President Patient Experience, MEDSEEK, and Garett Trumpower, Vice President Strategy and Consulting, MEDSEEK, will be joined by Microsoft Healthcare Industry Specialist, Robert Aaron. Together, they will highlight key points from the 360-Degree Patient Experience white paper, which delivers a use-case for the patient with the Sara Baker story and explains what you must do next to develop and implement successful strategies to engage and activate patients.
The webinar will also address the current landscape of healthcare reform and how the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are impacting providers through technology. The webinar presenters will also talk about the “siloed” technology that consumers and patients use to interact with healthcare providers and how it gets in the way of patient engagement and population health management, especially for the ePatient, who wants to be engaged across the continuum of care, in the home, throughout the care encounter, and post-discharge.
