To Enable Patients, Meet Them Where They Are

In anticipation of the upcoming Next Edge Summit, event host Next IT Healthcare talks with Lash Group’s Loreen Brown, Senior Vice President of Product, Strategy & Commercialization Excellence, regarding her perspective on how healthcare can use technology to synchronize efforts throughout the patient journey. Loreen will be a panel speaker at the conference, set for October 17th and 18th in Boston.

At Next IT Healthcare, we believe that patients should be in the driver’s seat. Until the patient is in charge of his or her own care, it will be impossible to make meaningful progress on some of the biggest issues facing our healthcare system. “Patient-centric care” is a big buzzword right now, and that gives me hope. But even if we know in theory that the patient belongs at the center of our healthcare system, we still have a long road ahead of us to make that a reality.

That’s why we’re so excited to be hosting the second annual Next Edge Health Experience Summit where we will explore the patient journey – the path healthcare professionals have to pave to fully empower the patient  – and how we get there.
