11:35 AM: Keynote: Knowledge is Power. In Healthcare, It’s Time to Share It

 

 
Joy Pritts J.D., Former Chief Privacy Officer, ONC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
To have real patient engagement, patients have to be well informed. Hear about what it really takes to get there: including providing patients access to the right information, raising awareness about the rights of patients to their data and making sure it’s easy for them to actually get that information in a form or format that is useful to them. The only way all of these changes occur is if providers – and healthcare itself – change their point of view on who should have knowledge – and power.
