(Nasdaq: HCAT) ("Twistle"), a secure communication platform that engages patients in their care, will host a variety of activities at the HIMSS21 Global Conference, including product demonstrations, a Pinksocks giveaway, and a Theater Presentation with Tom Burton, Director of Operations, Orthopedic and Neurosciences at Providence's Southern California Region. Twistle's activities at this year's event are focused on new and innovative ways to eliminate disparities in healthcare.
At Twistle's booth – Consumerism and Patient Engagement Pavilion in Caesar's Forum, booth #C437-38 – HIMSS21 participants are invited to learn how the company's patient engagement software can effectively address health inequities and other barriers to health and wellness. Live demonstrations will illustrate how patient engagement technology can reduce complications, support care plans, improve quality of life, and optimize care outcomes.
Visitors to the Twistle booth can also learn about #pinksocks, a phenomenon that ignited a movement at HIMSS15 and will be continued at this year's event. A limited supply of #pinksocks will be gifted to HIMSS attendees to represent a shared belief that we can all do our part to make a positive impact on the world and change it for the better.
Nick Adkins, Co-Founder of Pinksocks Life, Inc., a charitable organization focused on promoting human connection around the world, noted, "To achieve the promise of new approaches to healthcare, it will take all of us—technology companies, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, research centers, patients, providers—all working together toward a common goal."
Lastly, a HIMSS21 Theater Presentation will feature Tom Burton, Director of Operations, Orthopedic and Neurosciences at Providence's Southern California Region. During the presentation Burton will discuss how Providence is generating patient engagement return on investment (ROI) by improving patient readiness for surgery, resulting in reduced complications, shorter length of stay, reduced readmissions and emergency department visits, and more. This session will be held in the Consumer and Patient Engagement Pavilion on Tuesday, August 10, from 3:45-4:05 pm PT.
