United States (PRWEB) April 15, 2015
Open Mobile Media has recently interviewed Greg Orr, Director Consumer Digital Health, Walgreens in a podcast titled ‘Walgreens Building an mHealth Empire with the Customer at the Centre’.
Walgreens sees around 8 million customers a day and its new partnership with WebMD that has 66 million users every month really expands its customer touch points.
This exclusive podcast features an exclusive one on one with Open Mobile Media and Walgreens on how to better manoeuvre the crowded and complex connected health market. They discuss the importance of thinking about the patient and adapting to work in this fast shifting eco-system.
According to Greg Orr, Director Consumer Digital Health, Walgreens “it’s about taking the traditional healthcare model and seeing how we can reinvent it – with the customer in the center”. He went on to reinforce the importance of building relationships “we need to reduce friction points for patients be it adherence, remote care and behavior change, it’s about making it convenient”
The interview with Walgreens covers three areas: How do we reduce friction points for patients, out of the box engagement efforts to build relationships, better using data to create patterns to help patients and communities eat and live healthier.
Walgreens is using digital as a key platform for retail and healthcare innovation, and with partnerships with WebMD, Qualcomm, MDLIVE and more, it is poised to be one of the names to watch out for in 2015.
