- Many HC apps tend to be physician focused. What about other HCPs – nurses, PAs, etc? Why not apps for all HCPs?
- There has been an increase in dialogue lately aboutt cost transparency in HC. But what about transparency w/ payment that leads to conflict of interest? Example – providers w/ side businesses; consulting for pharma, etc. – should they disclose via SM? How? Does it impact pt perception of HCP? Also, many patient advocates are now consulting, working with pharma & device cos – how much disclosure is required, & when?
- HC orgs want more pt engagement. Pts want HC orgs involved to leverage resources. How do pts & HC orgs meet in the middle?
