The Digital Health Guy, Kevin Pereau, caught up with Abner Mason, CEO ConsejoSano at the recent HCEG Annual Summit.

The Digital Health Guy attended the Healthcare Executive Group (HCEG)’s Annual Summit, held 9 – 11 September at the Hotel Commonwealth in historic Kenmore Square, Boston. It was an honor to moderate a panel discussion with Anthem, VIM, and ConsejoSano on Digital Transformation: How Novel Technologies are Making a Tangible Impact.

We caught up with Abner after the panel and are pleased to share this interview with you. 

ConsejoSano’s first annual conference on Best Practices to Meet the Health Needs of Low Income and Multicultural Healthcare Consumers is the go-to event for healthcare plans and providers to gain insight about serving low-income, multicultural healthcare consumers.

The conference will include a range of compelling speakers, case study examples, and key insights to empower healthcare plans and policy makers to bring text messaging to their patient populations.

Attendees will learn about how text messaging is driving dynamic results in patient care, helping to address healthcare disparities and SDoH, and more, including how California’s new policy on text messaging in Medicaid is a market-changer and model for use of text messaging among healthcare consumers.
