New Prescription: Mobilize Patients’ Communities
Saturday, March 12

110 E 2nd St
You’ve been released from the hospital. But did you know they share responsibility for 30 days of your aftercare? This is a challenge for providers because only about half of U.S. patients take prescribed medications during this crucial period. This costs the healthcare system about $300 billion a year.

How can healthcare providers enhance support? Hear from the President of Seton Medical Center Austin and CEO of Rallyhood, who created an innovative program to mobilize patients’ personal communities that aide recovery.
