We’re back with our discussion on population health on our podcast, the HIT Breakdown. In today’s show we look at engaging the patient population as well as the challenges and solutions providers have used.
We're continuing to leverage the expertise of both Dr. David Levin, who is the Chief Medical Officer at Nordic, and Susan Marks, Director of Population Health at Amati Health. The links to the audio file appear below.
