Improving Patient Engagement for Underserved Populations through Mobile Technology
In episode 15, we spoke with a globally recognized public health practitioner with over 15 years of experience working across the public and private sectors in the United States, East and West Africa, and the Caribbean.
KP Yelpaala is a professor and expert in national health program implementation and is the Founder and CEO of access.mobile, a digital health company dedicated to improving patient engagement for underserved communities through the use of mobile technology.
During this episode, KP discussed his journey in the public health industry and how his global work helped him discover the opportunity to leverage cellular technology to bring healthcare to the masses across Africa. Additionally, KP shared how his company recently uncovered significant opportunity for their technology platform to positively impact care for high risk patients here in the United States.
Before we dive into the podcast, I want to thank KP and his team for their relentless desire and passion to bring critically needed care to some of the most underserved communities across the world. I hope you will take the time to support KP and his team on their journey as they continue to work toward their inspiring mission: to deploy a diverse team with expertise across public health, behavioral science, multicultural communications and health technology to improve patient care through intelligent mobile engagement.
