Joyce Graff and Nancy Finn recently participated on a panel on Patient Engagement. The conference was oriented toward staff of hospitals and insurance companies, working to engage their patients, designing procedures and systems that give the patients access to key information from their electronic health records, and to form a more productive partnership with their healthcare providers.
Robin and Joyce speak with Nancy Finn to recap the experience of the conference, and to speak more in depth about patient engagement in their own healthcare.
