Engaging patients in their health is a never ending battle, but often trusted providers are those best-positioned to make an impact. In this session, we’ll discuss the tools that best connect providers to their patients in a variety of ways to encourage them to actively manage their health – physically, financially, and emotionally.

Don’t cringe just yet. This panel features the best tools, apps, and programs for collaborating with fellow physicians, enhancing the patient-provider relationship, and engaging patients in their care.

Discussion Points

  • Overall patient engagement landscape – why the topic is so overkill, sometimes poorly done and yet so important
  • Unique solutions helping providers engage patients in aspects of their healthcare
  • Innovative product demos from leading health IT vendors
  • How do we engage patients to want to stay in control of their whole health?
  • What motivates, stimulates and excites patients to want to get and keep control of their health destiny?
  • How can digital tools bring provider and consumers together in a partnership for health?

"The question I keep asking myself and the industry should really consider is, ‘Will healthcare clear the engagement hurdle?’," says Frost & Sullivan Senior Vice President of Healthcare and Life Sciences Greg Caressi. "Of the primary sources of health information that individuals utilize, we spend the least time engaging with healthcare providers, even though many people value information from these clinicians more highly than information from other sources. There’s obvious beneficial value for stakeholders to figure out how time-strapped clinicians can leverage technology to more efficiently provide information to their patients, and improve their quality of care."
