NEXT NYAPRS MEDICAID REDESIGN LEARNING COLLABORATIVE (MRLC) WEBINAR

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

 

"Using Technology to Improve Engagement and Wellness"

Integration,

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.
