Here are some of our favorite pieces from 2015:

  • In “The Known Unknown: Behavioral Health in America,” we discuss the state of behavioral and mental health in the U.S. We talk about the progress that has been made, but also highlight the significant room for improvement that exists in the current healthcare system.
  • Welkin Joins #GivingTuesday Effort,” talks about Welkin’s increased push to give back to the local SF community and how employees are working to improve the lives of others.
  • In “Growing Pains: Chronic Illnesses Linked to Youth Stressors,” we discuss research that points to the causes of chronic diseases. Though there are many potential factors in determining chronic disease incidence, ways exist to limit the potential for individuals to become stricken with one of these illnesses.
  • In “The Technology Will See You Now,” we discuss how the patient experience has been, and will continue to be, transformed by new technologies, including the cloud, imaginative communication platforms, and disease tracking tools.
  • The Invisible Cost of Chronic Diseases” highlights how the American public will begin to see the true costs of chronic illnesses – premiums will increase and the overall population will see expenditures rise because of high rates of disease.
  •  “Constructing Your Welkin Diabetes Platform” is a whitepaper that walks you through the Welkin system and how it can benefit your organization. We talk about improved enrollment, unique inbox interfaces, actionable profiles and how structured data can benefit your organization. You can access it through our post titled “Welkin Health Will Support Your Care Coordination Plan.”

We have a lot more coming in 2016 that we can’t wait to share with you!
