The Kareo community and HC disruptors everywhere made big predictions for tech-enabled patient engagement strategies for 2016. We saw some bold applications to include post-visit QA applications, remote monitoring enhancements, and of course FHIR. But we also saw push back against some developments in patient portal models. We saw security challenges continue and interoperability continue to be elusive. “This discussion is important because in order to move forward, we must re-assess and reflect,” said Shereese Maynard who returns to host #KareoChat this Thursday, December 22 at 9 AM PT. “As I tell my provider clients, ‘Time to reflect, correct, and re-direct!’” Come join @shereesepubhlth and @GoKareo and share your two cents on the best of patient engagement tech in 2016.
Here are the chat questions to help you prepare your thoughts and join the conversation.
- In 2016, we learned that #PatientEngagement went beyond basic portals. How did you define it?
- What new engagement tech impressed you in 2016?
- What could we have gone without? What repelled providers/patients?

- What patient engagement applications were easy for patients/providers?
Did you/your org get FHIR-ed up in 2016?
