At this conference, also streamed live via the web, Mr. Rose will discuss how patient engagement can be a core strategy for improvement in health care processes and outcomes. Mr. Rose’s presentation will include research that demonstrates that successful patient engagement improves outcomes and saves money.
“Patient Engagement is at times an operating principle, a marketing strategy, and an industry buzzword. This tends to scatter focus on what patient engagement actually means for providers and plans.
