On October 12th in Boston I attended the Planetree 2015 International Conference on Patient-Centered Care. Planetree, Inc. is a mission based non-profit organization that partners with health care organizations around the world and across the continuum of care to transform how health care is delivered to patients.
Beyond dollars, HCAHPS scores, and readmission problems, health professionals, the hospitals and facilities that they represent, along with patient advocacy groups, patients, and the families they serve, came together to learn how they are, and will be, “part of the revolution” in transforming health care.
“We are the Revolution”
Planetree’s 2015 conference had the resounding theme of “We are the Revolution”, embodied by the informational sessions and networking that was chock full of ideas and overview of successful programs.
Dozens of sessions included everything from conflict & creativity, cultural transformation, and patient activation to staff engagement, leadership development, and performance improvement.
The experts and those effected by disengagement spoke about the desperate need of affording the patient compassion always and more support and engagement through their daily life.
From personal compassion to high tech engagement Planetree is a revolutionary organization creating sustenance to a longstanding blight of a system that at times forgets about the one person they are charged to take care of. Patient engagement, education, and compassion in the 21st Century. With technology that enables us to cost effectively be part of the life of all those we serve.

As the exclusive sponsor of “Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month”, the 2015 Planetree Conference wasn’t just a great opportunity to gather with other leaders in patient-centered engagement, it was the perfect time to announce the launch of one of GoMo Health’s latest innovations.
