Education & Training
Providing important health resources for your community's future.
It's not news that the communities we serve are often the last ones considered when it comes to advanced technology and digital health. Traditional patient engagement platforms are either unaware of the challenges in reaching these communities or simply do not invest on the development side to adequately bridge the growing gap. However, when it comes to early detection and prevention, these under-reached communities have the most to benefit from effective outreach. To that end, HHCGA, in partnership with HIA Technologies, Inc. has launched HIA Topics(TM), an interactive platform for patient engagement that is capable of answering patient questions in real-time. Physician-controlled AI delivers medically-validated answers when patients need it most. Three educational topics aimed at increasing screening for colon and breast cancers are hosted by HIA's simulated assistants and available 24/7 on our website.
