WHAT:    A central theme of HIMSS 2018 is how to engage patients where they are in order to provide care that is responsive to each patient’s needs. Dr. Makoul is an internationally recognized expert in physician- patient communication and shared decision making.  With PatientWisdom, he has developed a radical common sense, person-centered approach to health care innovation. He is available to discuss how the company is transforming health transactions into meaningful relationships that improve both the patient and provider experience. PatientWisdom helps care teams create more meaningful and effective interactions with their patients without taking longer. The company’s 1-screen inSIGHT summary is integrated into the EHR, and providers say it takes less than 20 seconds to review before seeing a patient. Yale New Haven Health, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, OSF HealthCare, and other advanced health systems are working with PatientWisdom to improve patient and provider experience by making it easy to focus on what truly matters to patients as people.
