Intoduction to Organized Wisdom; the background and an outline of the trust-related challenges as faced by the organization as well as how they have been tackled.
One phenomenon that permeates all aspects of online health; patient engagement; self service; online marketing of anything related to personal health is the issue of trust. How can the necessary level of trust be established and maintained without the human interaction; the interaction between the patient and the clinician / consultant, which most stakeholders would traditionally have considered fundamental. How should the conversation, consultation and ongoing communication be approached? We have gathered a panel of stakeholders who have each grappled with these challenges and each made great strides in their respective fields to highlight and explore some of the many questions. Hear their experiences, ask questions and challenge their thinking at this fascinating session.
