Health IT’s Role in Patient Engagement

Share this post:

Getting a healthy patient engaged in wellness and preventive practices, or getting patients with chronic diseases engaged in their own care management is a goal and a challenge for providers across the care continuum. The complexity of healthcare guidelines makes it difficult to successfully monitor patients’ status manually, and impractical to conduct targeted engagement using conventional methods alone. To be effective, population health management should include a variety of interventions – some of them automated – to keep patients engaged and help them manage their own care between visits.

Watch the webinar replay “Health IT’s Role in Patient Engagement” to hear from Judy Murphy, Chief Nursing Officer at IBM Global Healthcare and Jon Mark Harmon, Solution Executive at IBM Watson Health.

During this presentation, the speakers covered:

  • How patient engagement facilitates the transition to value-based care
  • Opportunities for applying cognitive computing to patient engagement initiatives
  • Strategies for engaging with a diabetic patient population
