Creating health practices that patients love and trust

A number of issues and challenges have recently put trust front and centre of the debate around the future of health care.  These include a society-wide loss of trust in established institutions, the role of technology changing how patients access health care, the provision of patient feedback online for other consumers to view and cyber-security concerns.

In this two hour workshop Craig Rispin, Futurist, will delve into the likely challenges general practices will face.  Craig will also be joined by Dr Marcus Tan, CEO of Health Engine, who will offer insights on how to keep ahead of the game – building trust along the way.

If you want to learn how to manage your practice’s online reputation including the critical cyber-security steps that you need to take to protect yourself and your practice, then this is the workshop for you!
