This Bright Spots in Healthcare episode is sponsored by Revel Health, which is innovating how healthcare organizations think about pop health and consumer engagement. In brief, Revel Health focuses on understanding people. They know the populations you struggle with like Medicaid or Medicare Advantage, are NOT about population health — it’s about the individual. And this is the most important point I want to make, they approach healthcare differently, by understanding the values and belief systems of the individual, so they can create a personalized plan to drive positive behavioral change. It’s really a very fresh way of thinking about engagement and SDOH. Check them out at www.revel-health.com.
