June 12: Topic – The Engaged Consumer is the SMART Consumer
As consumers have more access to health information, they make better choices both in and out of the doctor’s office. From websites that help consumers find the best doctor to medical devices that provide instant feedback between doctor’s visits, connected health is dramatically changing access to health information and empowering patients.
October 9: Topic – Prepare to Disrupt: Social Networks Connect Patients Faster, Better, Cheaper?
Ready for an interactive health revolution? Social networking has the potential to bring as much disruption to the health world as it has brought to politics. Friends post about their physical activity and health conditions on Facebook while patients join online communities and seek advice from physician crowd-sourcing sites. Learn how social networks are changing consumer health engagement.
