Palm Beach Gardens, FL, July 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A big picture view of the “ePatient” – a healthcare consumer equipped, enabled and empowered by digital technology to make better decisions about their care and that of their loved ones -- will be among the keynote presentations at the 7th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Sept. 20-24, 2014, in Washington, D.C.
Rohit Bhargava, best-selling co-author of “ePatient 2015: 15 Surprising Trends Changing Healthcare,” will share individual stories of engaged and empowered patients who have been successful in “care-hacking” the convoluted healthcare system and suggest how developers of digital technologies can prosper in the future.
“ePatient 2015: 15 Surprising Trends Changing Health Care” acts as a guide to the rapid changes taking place in health by sharing movements that are poised to fundamentally change the way health and medical care is delivered and received in the near future.
Bhargava, founder of the Influential Marketing Group, is also author of “Likeonomics: The Unexpected Truth behind Earning Trust, Influencing Behavior, and Inspiring Action,” which was shortlisted for 2013 Best Sales/Marketing Book of the Year by 1800CEORead.
In addition to speaking and consulting, Bhargava teaches global marketing at Georgetown University and is regularly quoted as a marketing and business expert by media outlets including The New York Times, Fast Company, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, and NPR.
