During the presentation, Putney introduced WellFX, a new social platform designed specifically for healthcare providers to help improve health outcomes of patients with chronic conditions through engagement, education and community.
“It was an honor to be asked to speak at the HIT Summit,” said WellFX CEO Jock Putney. “Response to our WellFX social platform was very positive and validated our belief that healthcare has important and industry specific needs for social network platforms that need to be uniquely addressed. WellFX will be introduced to members of the CPCA later this year. We are excited to see how it helps transforms the way providers enhance patient engagement in their own healthcare.”
