If you have already registered please "Sign In" in the upper right hand corner.  How the U.S. perceives, pays for and delivers care is changing rapidly. As a nation, we have begun to explore how new technologies can better inform and drive better models of care. Failure to engage patients successfully results in an inability to innovate in care delivery and, consequently, a failure to transform our healthcare system. Parental Health’s “MISTY” – (Medical Information Systems to You) is a patient engagement platform that integrates and enhances the workflow of companies that are at risk for the cost of providing care. MISTY assists clinical teams to manage patients with chronic disease states, even in rural communities and across the globe.
