As healthcare increasingly embraces the "retail reality" of the future, the level of access to patient information and one's health has never been more individualized or available. In two touches on a smartphone, a patient can now access lab tests, radiology images, and schedule appointments with their physician - providing "instant" access and support to the healthcare experience. But, what are providers doing to take this a step further, and incorporate an "Amazon-like" experience for the patient? In this discussion, we'll address the latest trends and national approaches to "consumerizing" the healthcare care experience. Hear about top consumer mobile applications from a cardiovascular AI advisor that recommends heart-healthy options nearby, to the OpenNotes movement which is engaging patients to better understand ailments and treatments. Our panel will also discuss telehealth trends for psychiatry and behavioral health, in addition to educating at-risk populations and unique incentives for them to pursue their health on a daily basis.
