Don’t miss the next monthly MISU/BMC/VA/BU Medical Informatics Seminar, “Connected Health as a Tool to Improve Patient Engagement and Patient Empowerment. Learn about connected health programs, including remote monitoring, mobile health initiatives and other technology-enabled interventions can create behavior change, generate efficiencies and improve the quality of patient care. Specific solutions address cardiac care, at-risk pregnancies, opioid addiction, and diabetes and blood pressure issues. This seminar will be given by Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, founder and director of Partners Healthcare Center for Connected Health, an organization focused on strategies to move care from the hospital or doctor’s office into the day-to-day lives of patients. By leveraging information technology including cell phones, computers, networked devices and simple remote health monitoring tools, providers and patients may be able to better manage chronic conditions, maintain health and wellness and improve adherence, engagement and clinical outcomes.
