Closing the Health Literacy and Engagement Gap Through Innovative Gamification Strategies


Thomas Chamberlain
Founder & CEO, EdLogics

Karen Mueller
EVP and Partner, Horan


Session Description

Low health literacy is one of the most widespread barriers to achieving better health outcomes and is a major driver of escalating healthcare costs. When employees understand their health and are engaged in their care, clinical and financial outcomes improve. Through game-based learning, multimedia educational strategies, gamification, and rewards for educational achievement, employers can transform the way employees learn about health and empower them to become better healthcare decision-makers and more active participants in their healthcare. Dr. Chamberlain will lead a discussion on how innovative employers are developing fun, engaging, and highly effective educational initiatives that motivate employees to learn about their health and increase their participation in population health initiatives. The speakers will describe how specific engagement strategies (daily questions, monthly challenges, leaderboards, badges, quizzes, personalized education recommendations, etc.) are being used to change behavior, create a fun and healthy workplace environment, and improve health outcomes.
