Webinar: The Digital Front Door & The Healthcare Consumer

November 16, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Patients are no longer defined by just their clinical records – they represent a complex collection of preferences, needs, demographics and socioeconomic factors. As consumer expectations have grown, the ability to tailor care directly to the “whole” person has emerged as a powerful differentiator for health systems. In this session, we will cover:

How consumer digital experiences have raised patient expectations;
How personalized approaches to engagement and care orchestration drive better outcomes and satisfaction;
What health systems can do now to meet consumers’ changing needs.

Presenters: Leslie Lennergard and Amanda DeMano
