Engage4Health

You can hear Engage4Health During our Archive Show Weekdays at 4:30 am and 8:30pm.

  Engage4Health is a 30-minute discussion regarding the concepts, strategies and tactics of engaging individuals in their “health-ness” (health + wellness), using health IT. Often, this takes the form of health care providers seeking to communicate with the patients in their care via secure messaging, patient portals, untethered Personal Health Records, mobile apps, tele-consults, and even social media! Engage4Health will highlight examples of success engagement that can be duplicated by providers, as well as venturing into new areas, and occasionally talking about the philosophies, concepts, and trends that are driving the need for such engagement. Brad Tritle will host “fireside chats” with providers, payors, vendors, community initiative leaders, and others that can share what has worked, what hasn’t  and where Twenty-First Century engagement is going.
