We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 1/12 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Constance Sjoquist (@CASjoquist), Chief Content Officer at HLTH.co on the topic of “Driving Innovation in Healthcare Forward Requires New Ways of Thinking.”
Traditional channels for ideating, learning, and sharing ideas, products and services that can improve healthcare outcomes, lower costs and make it easier on everyone involved are changing. Health plan members, budding consumers, both new and long-time patients, sponsor payers, employers, providers, medical device companies, pharma companies and start-ups and investors all have a vested interest. Not to mention the various federal and state-level government agencies that regulate all of these constituents.
So how can all of us – ALL OF US – work together to improve healthcare outcomes and lower costs – all while making it easier on all of us?
This chat raises and explores some ideas to help drive innovation in healthcare forward. We need new ways of thinking. Gigantic conferences and one-sided media movements are not cutting it.
Come join this exchange on how we can ALL participate and contribute in the drive to make healthcare more innovative.
