VP of Research and Innovation at Shepherd Center


About the event:

The most effective delivery of healthcare is done within established relationships that rely on trust and connection. However, even the most personable medical professionals struggle to build, and maintain, relationships with patients once they leave the hospital walls.

When patients have a local, relatable team that is guiding them through at-home care and chronic condition management, including people with disability as part of the conversation, it can impact the effectiveness of treatment. Further, by providing caregiver support and including them in the patient journey, it results in more adherence to prescribed programming.

Join Dr. Backus, VP of Research and Innovation at the Shepherd Center, and Daniel Freedman, co-CEO of Burnalong, to discuss how they are engaging patients and families through their collaboration providing virtual patient care and social motivation hosted on Burnalong. Plus, learn who they are engaging as part of remote treatment and the impact relationships can make with at-home care.
