Patient Engagement:  Types, Trends, and Opportunities

August 30, 2017

1:30-2:00pm CST


Join us for “Patient Engagement: Types, Trends, and Opportunities” hosted by Kathy Kunath, RN, Training and Partner Relations, Iowa Chronic Care Consortium (ICCCC). Kathy will be joined by ICCC executive director Bill Appelgate for the discussion. They’ll start by explaining why patient engagement offers important benefits to patients and practices alike. Then Kathy and Bill will describe the value of practice-level and patient-level engagement and share reasons why it’s a good idea for clinicians to focus on both types. Strategies that have been proven to increase patient engagement will be shared, with examples drawn from ICCC projects that supported patients with heart failure. Q&A follows the presentation.

The Webinar Agenda Will Include:



- Define changes in healthcare driving the importance of engagement
- Describe two distinct types of patient engagement and the value of each.
- Explore effective strategies used in both types of patient engagement that drive improved outcomes
