Patient Engagement Systems to Present “In Search of Patient Engagement” at Medical Home Summit

Leading authorities from the medical home field gather to discuss patient engagement as a key operating strategy for health care improvement
Feb. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Burlington, VT  –  February 21,  2012  –  James Rose, Senior Vice President for Patient Engagement Systems, a healthcare  technology  company  that  provides   solutions  for  improving  primary  care  for  people  with  chronic  diseases,  will  be  presenting  “In Search of Patient Engagement”  at  the  Fourth  National  Medical  Home  Summit  in  Philadelphia, February 27th to 29th.  The Medical Home Summit, sponsored by Jefferson School of Population Health, Harvard Health Policy Review, Health Affairs and Medical Home News, is the leading education event to address patient center medical homes (PCMH).

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.  What would be useful for providers is a common framework that ties patient engagement directly to outcomes,” said Mr. Rose.  “With patient engagement such an important aspect of the medical home, the goal of this session is to propose a framework that will help providers and plans define what patient engagement means for their organization.”  Mr. Rose’s  presentation  at  the  National  Medical  Home  Summit  will  take  place  at  2:15  p.m. on Tuesday February 28th.
