Boston-based Harvard Health Publications teamed up with Outcome Health, a Chicago-based health IT company that aims to provide physicians and patients with actionable healthcare insights, to improve patient engagement.

Harvard Health Publications, a division of Boston-based Harvard Medical School, draws on the experiences of more than 11,000 faculty clinicians to create health engagement materials targeted toward patients and caregivers.

Under the collaboration, Harvard Health Publications will provide advisory support and faculty review for Outcome Health's waiting and exam room services. The organizations plan to co-develop patient content such as illustrations and videos.

"We are excited about this relationship with Outcome Health, which aligns directly with HHP's mission of improving the health of the nation," said Gregory Curfman, MD, editor-in-chief of Harvard Health Publications. "We will now be able to create a greater positive impact by sharing Harvard Medical School's faculty expertise with a broader audience through an engaging and informative experience at the time it matters most: the moments of care."

Harvard Health Publications and Outcome Health also plan to conduct focus groups on patient attitudes and experiences related to clinical trials by the end of 2017.
