Health Dialog Announces Shared Decision Making Webinar in Conjunction with AHIP
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
In today's tumultuous health care environment, physicians and patients
are increasingly concerned with having the right information about
treatment options. Healthcare professionals and payers agree that one
way to improve quality and reduce costs is for patients to become more
active participants in their own healthcare. Shared Decision Making
empowers people to make better decisions and to become more informed
consumers through discussions with providers around treatment
preferences directly at the point of care. Properly planned and
executed, Shared Decision Making will be critical to moving provider
practices forward as they strive to comply with reform expectations,
deliver more accountable care, and achieve recognition as Patient
Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs).
To assist practices with this initiative, Health Dialog is hosting a webinar
on Thursday, November 15, 2012 that will focus on critical success
factors and best practices for integrating Shared Decision Making at the
point of care. Dr. Peter Goldbach, Chief Medical Officer at Health
Dialog, will address:
What type of an impact Shared Decision Making can have on patient
satisfaction and utilization;
What constitutes Shared Decision Making at its best given the large
quantity of associated variables; and,
Critical success factors and best practices for implementing Shared
Decision Making at the point of care.
"Redefining Healthcare Through Shared Decision Making"
Thursday, November 15
1:00 - 2:30pm, EDT
