If Content is King, Why are So Many Health Systems Resisting Digital Patient Education?

new-tablet-imageYou hear that phrase more and more every day.  Over one billion YouTube videos are watched every day.  Millions of people are Facebooking, Instagramming, Snapchatting, Tweeting and more.  Every second of every day people are craving more and more content.

Except when you go to see your physician.  Here they rely on canned content like CNN, Fox News, Games Shows, Drug Commercials, and other inane daytime TV programming or worse Pharma sponsored Patient Education to placate patients while they wait for their appointments.

There are no videos about the power of diet, nutrition, exercise, and mediation.  No content on how to manage your disease state, how to lessen its effects, how to prevent it all together.  There are no navigation slides that help patients manage your health system- telling them important stuff like where your specialty offices are located, what pharmacies are partners to ensure proper medication management, what radiology center or PT is close to their home.  Just mainstream media blathering on.

Please don’t insult me by saying people need to get away from their problems.  Most of their day is spent lost in the Kardashians and it does not seem to be making them live any better.
