Join us as Brian Jack, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of iCare Navigator Personal Health CoachesFamily Medicine at Boston University, shares pertinent research involving the use of virtual health coaches (avatars) as part of the in-hospital patient education and patient discharge process. With more than a decade of research with Project RED (Re-Engineered Discharge), Dr. Jack will show how using technology incorporating responsive, adaptive avatars can better prepare and motivate patients to take more responsibility for their own care.

Further clinical evidence will demonstrate how this transformative approach resulted in reducing 30-day post-hospitalization Emergency Department visits and readmissions.

Empathy With Avatars
Experts predict that avatar technology will give health care providers a new set of tools to contribute to patient learning, adherence, and behavioral change.

During this webinar, you'll see how Project RED inspired the vision for a revolutionary interactive patient engagement system--iCare Navigator--that actually measures and analyzes a patient’s responsiveness, mood, receptiveness, adaptation, and overall participation to modify long-term patient behavior and improve health outcomes. These virtual coaches also facilitate managing patient service requests to better enhance the overall patient experience of care
