UCM’s mobile texting project featured in newly released Health Affairs video on patient engagement

September 9, 2014 – Yesterday, the journal Health Affairs released videos about patient engagement that they produced in partnership with the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The three videos describe ways in which patients and practitioners make health care decisions in a patient-engaged manner. UCM’s mobile texting program, developed by a team of investigators including CCDTR investigators, was featured in one of the videos. The videos go along with the February 2013 issue of Health Affairs entitled “New Era Of Patient Engagement.”
