Engagys Co-Founder Kathleen Ellmore to Speak at the Rise West Summit

Burlington, Mass. (September 9, 2019) Engagys, an emerging leader in healthcare consumer engagement, today announced that Co-Founder and Managing Director Kathleen Ellmore is on the speaker marquee at the 2019 Rise West Summit, being held September 9 - 11 at the Loew’s Coronado Bay Resort. Ellmore, who is an expert in consumer engagement in the healthcare space, is leading a panel of consumers who will share insights on their experiences with Medicare and Medicare Advantage.

According to Ellmore, “Member engagement is important any age but particularly relevant for those age 65 and older who are navigating their health insurance in their retirement years. Seniors are a diverse population, and this session is an opportunity for them to share their individual and unique experiences navigating Medicare and Medicare Advantage. Having an opportunity to do so in front of an audience of key managed healthcare executives helps to shape the future of healthcare access, delivery, and engagement.”

Ellmore is an award-winning, high energy, consumer engagement expert with more than 25 years of experience. Ellmore and the Engagys team work with health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, and health tech organizations in leveraging data analytics to motivate their consumers to make better health decisions. Prior to founding Engagys, Ellmore led the consumer engagement consulting practice for Silverlink (now Welltok), bringing together a data repository of more than a billion consumer health interactions, the best of behavioral economics, and the latest in clinical research to help healthcare organizations close the last mile of consumer engagement.

She speaks regularly on the national stage on topics such as: driving consumer health engagement, creating better consumer experiences in healthcare, motivating and inspiring health consumers, and using data to drive desired health consumer behaviors.
