Digital Health Communications: If You Build It, Will They Come?

Event Date

Hosted by JHU Federal Government Affinity and JHU Healthcare Affinity

With federal healthcare organizations focused on designing and implementing portals where the public can access information, how do they ensure that they will find them, use them, and take value from the experience? In recent months (think Healthcare.gov) there has been a great deal of interest from federal government and industry to learn more about the impact digital services has on millions of American citizens who access critical information from federal agencies.  There are so many great stories to share about design and engineering methodologies that have improved the end-user experience and their overall interaction with important federal government information.

The JHU Federal Government and Health Care Affinity groups are launching a three-part educational panel discussion series to discuss digital health service communications in federal government. The panelists for the first in the series will be comprised of digital communications experts who have both the experience and an over-all love for leveraging technology to help citizens in their everyday lives.
