It’s a Question of Trust: Engaging Patients and Building Trust Across the Lifespan

On Monday, March 6th, at 2:00 PM CT, leading digital health leaders will discuss the question of trust around several angles such as cross-generational and cultural factors. Trust is a key component for any relationship and, in healthcare, essential in building security between patient, provider and the healthcare system as a whole. Building – and rebuilding – trust that lasts across a patient’s lifespan is comprised of many layers. How do we provide care to each patient where they are, considering how each access their care? How does trust influence how patients share their data and help them to truly “buy into” virtual care and the system as whole…as partners to help optimize their health continuum?  This provocative discussion will explore these burning issues and more – and consider how we can truly conquer the issue of trust.
