Health Literacy and HIT: Implications for the New Communication LandscapeThursday

This webinar was co-sponsored by the PCPCC Center for eHealth Information Adoption and Exchange and the Center for Consumer Engagement and will feature Dr. Christine Zarcadoolas from the CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter and Dr. Sylvia Chou from the National Cancer Institute. At least half of all adults in the US are low literate and/ have inadequate health literacy (struggle to find, understand and use health information). Dr. Zarcadoolas will discuss health literacy, referring to her current research investigating patient usability of electronic medical records (EMRs).  Dr. Chou will place EMRs into the dynamic context of consumer use of technology more broadly – internet, and mobile, and social media.
