This past week at the HIMSS Conference, Perficient was lucky enough to be able to host a Tweet Up on Patient Engagement. Our own Martin Sizemore emceed the event, which attracted several members of The Walking Gallery.
Attendees of the Tweet Up discussed what patients are looking for in a portal, engaging patients who do not have internet access, and the roles of gamification and Meaningful Use in the ePatient movement. We also talked about the future of patient engagement and its impact on healthcare. At the Tweet Up we gave away a Nike Fuel band and a FitBit One to the top two crowd-voted Tweets. The participants of the Tweet Up were truly equipped, enabled, empowered and engaged.
We appreciate the many participants in the Tweet Up, both in person and virtually. To read a transcript of the #ePatient Tweet Up, click here.
