“Patient Engagement: Looking Towards the New Normal
In this session, Dr. Monica Reed will explore the evolution of patient engagement from the seeds of measuring “satisfaction” and tracking “experience” to building true collaborative “engagement.” With an eye to the future coupled with the lessons we can take from our collective response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Reed leverages research and patient stories to identify key components for building Patient Engagement Culture moving forward. Key focus areas include:
Consumerism and diversity
Collaboration throughout the care ecosystem.”

Healthcare during COVID-19
COVID-19 has brought about many changes, one of which can include how we access healthcare. Not surprisingly, there are many questions people are asking themselves including: When should I go to an emergency room? Is diagnostic testing for non-COVID-19-related issues being done? How does a person see a specialist? Can I make an appointment to see my personal physician? If so, how is this done?
In the video below, Dr. Sheila Wijayasinghe looks at these and other questions and explains how to get the care needed during the ongoing pandemic.
