DALLASDec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, a leading health economist and communicator, and Nicole Althaus, Chief Marketing Officer at HealthMine will present, “The Evolution of Digital Health for Medicare Advantage Beneficiaries” on December 10th at the AHIP Consumer Experience & Digital Health Forum from 1:55pm- 2:40pm at The Swissotel in Chicago.

Attendees will learn how to accelerate the digital health of current Medicare Beneficiaries, most of whom are Baby Boomers dubbed as “digital immigrants,” who must learn to adapt to new environments, despite often retaining a foot in the past.  Key in this session will be how to effectively engage seniors to complete health actions for improving or maintaining their health. The speakers will also examine Medicare Advantage plan opportunities to meet demands for greater care at home, financial wellness, personalized motivation and independent living.

The presentation will draw on trends and findings from HealthMine’s proprietary research and industry trends and insights, which were part of HealthMine’s 2019 White Paper by Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, “A Call for Care That’s Personal, Accessible and Social.” The paper addressed communication issues between Medicare Advantage Beneficiaries and the U.S. Healthcare System.
