Join healthcare’s best to take on patient engagement at MedCity ENGAGE

February 19, 2013 8:55 am by | 2 Comments

patient engagement conference MedCity ENGAGE

Of all the grand opportunities in healthcare, patient engagement is the biggest. Simply put: How we pay for healthcare has changed forever. Now literally thousands of experiments are under way mixing accountable care organizations, digital health, big data, medical homes, new reimbursement strategies, telemedicine and more. They’re all trying to unlock how to better engage patients and deliver high-value healthcare in a new era.

That’s why we’ve convened MedCity ENGAGE, a summit on patient engagement and healthcare delivery on June 5 and 6 in Washington, D.C. You need to attend. Top payers, providers and policymakers will join healthcare’s technology sector and the ecosystem supporting patient engagement for the one conference that will best outline consumer engagement trends that sit at the core of healthcare innovation and reform.

Our early bird rate is available; buy your tickets now.

ENGAGE’s partners and speakers demonstrate the value of our unique event. Health and Human Services and the Office of the National Coordinator are partnering with us on ENGAGE. Plus, we’re getting support from UnitedHealth Group and the Foundation for Healthcare Innovation, founded by Wil Yu, who previously led nationwide healthcare innovation efforts through the Department of Health and Human Services, among others.

Our speakers include:

  • Peter Levin, chief technology officer for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
  • Dr. Joseph Kvedar, founder and director of the Center for Connected Health in Boston
  • Dr. James Merlino, director of patient experience at Cleveland Clinic
  • Lygeia Ricciardi, director, Office of Consumer eHealth at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT
  • Alexis Skoufalos, associate dean at Jefferson School of Population Health

Winning accountable care organization models. Empowering Medicare reimbursement trends. Cutting-edge health data insights. All of those topics and more will be covered at ENGAGE. Plus, we’ll have a 24-member innovation showcase that highlights the most promising startup companies and projects from foundations and government looking to make true engagement a reality.

“We need to bring together people from diverse perspectives — patients, providers, developers, payers — to collaborate and find new ways to engage consumers through technology,” Ricciardi said. “Information technology is both upgrading the traditional healthcare system and also empowering consumers to engage more fully in their health and healthcare as never before.  Let’s use technology to tap into the power of consumers — the most underutilized resource in healthcare.”

We didn’t pick ENGAGE’s time and place lightly. That week of ENGAGE is the time for discussions on healthcare data and innovation. The ENGAGE conference follows the big data-focused Health Datapalooza. Plus, Washington, D.C. is the epicenter for the biggest decisions pending on patient engagement and healthcare delivery.

In short: Everyone with a stake in transforming medicine will be in the nation’s capital that entire week solving healthcare’s biggest challenges.

Join us at ENGAGE.
