Patient Engagement: Behavioral Strategies for Better Health

February 25, 2016
4:40am - 3:26pm EST

Practical innovations in health care delivery.

As new financial models emerge, health care leaders, providers, and their organizations are thinking more broadly about how to influence patient behavior. Taking on more risk requires new strategies for involving patients in decisions about their own care. We win or lose based on whether patients take an active role in staying healthy and adhering to treatment when ill.

Join us for an afternoon of expert insight and real-world examples on using patient engagement to make the transition to value-based care and improve the health of our population.
