Tuesday, December 1st, 2015
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
"Using Technology to Improve Engagement and Wellness"
engagement, prevention and wellness are the new "buzz" words of our
health care system. But how do we create and sustain services that
truly actualize these terms in a way that assists the people who
access our services. This webinar will demonstrate how the use of
technology can be critical to providing comprehensive person centered
care through the involvement of community based organizations and
electronic portals, patient portals and field based documentation.
Join us as one of the leaders in our field discusses some of the
latest advances in technology and electronic health records and helps
us to explore how these tools advance care and services.
