Blog | Showcasing Innovative Solutions to Improve Patient Care

By Jenni Bendfeldt, Founder and CEO, RecastHealth; President-Elect Northern California Chapter of HIMSS

In April our chapter hosted the annual ePatient Summit with a focus on how social determiants of health impact care outcomes. During this event a group of panelists presented a case study on how they were able to address patient access and transportation issues through innovative partnerships.

Panelists included Sheila Lyzwa, VP of Care Coordination for Alameda Health System; Thomishia Booker, Manager of Care Management, Alameda Health System; Steve Grau, Founder & CEO of Royal Ambulance; and Dan Trigub, Head of Uber Health. The session was facilitated by John Sharp, Director, Thought Advisory for Personal Connected Health Alliance.

This presentation led to the creation of a thought leadership piece that was published as a blog on HIMSS National. Our chapter is incredibly honored to be able to promote such exciting advances in healthcare taking place right here at home and we invite you to read the article here: Removing Patient Transport Barriers with Innovative Partnerships.

If you are interested in presenting your own story of how innovative partnerships have made an impact on patient outcomes, please reach out to us. We are always looking for conference speakers or contributors to our chapter blog. Email for more information.
