General Session Theatre


Our expertise at creating catchy buzzwords, monikers and concepts about engagement and activation, while seductive, is undermined by our failure to know how to make them actionable and sustainable. Despite millions spent on engagement based marketing slogans, placards, banners, and peripheral materials on promoting and sustaining behavior change how to effectively do that remains elusive.

This session will explore the manner in which a person-centric approach to health and well-being coupled with digital and information technologies can change the trajectory of our nations health by helping each person become and remain healthier. We will discuss implications for how we design systems of care as well as how we employ human and health information technologies to create architectures into which persons can comfortably fit.
