We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 7/21 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Melody Smith Jones (@MelSmithJones) from HYP3R on the topic of “Meeting the Patient Where They Are.”
Every day, decision-makers across the healthcare industry sit in boardrooms charting the course for the future of patient engagement.
At the same time, individual patients are turning to new sources for health information, researching symptoms online and crowdsourcing answers from friends on social media.
More than ever, healthcare providers need to meet patients where they are.
Join this Twitter chat to explore how healthcare decision-makers can get out of the confines of the boardroom and truly understand the patient experience of today.
Questions we will explore in this week’s #HITsm chat include:
T1: As the healthcare consumer turns away from traditional media & towards digital channels, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
T2: Since financial literacy and price transparency have a steep learning curve, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
T3: As healthcare consumers continue to become avid researchers in their own right, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
T4: As the patient stares blankly at the available patient portal, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
T5: As patients and families bring digital devices with them into the care setting, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
Bonus: As the worlds of social media and intelligence continue to merge, how can we meet the patient where they are? #HITsm
