ATLANTA (Nov. 2, 2023) – Art Pharmacy, a healthcare-grade social prescribing solution, is proud to announce that it has been chosen to be featured on the South by Southwest®(SXSW®) Conference and Festivals “Social Prescribing: Bridging the Gap Between Art, Well-Being” panel, taking place March 8 - 16, 2024 in Austin, Texas.
Composed of arts in healthcare industry professionals, the panel will cover the nation’s emerging social prescribing movement through which healthcare providers prescribe social interventions as a part of care along with its positive impact on health.
“SXSW is an incredible platform, and I’m honored to be amongst this panel of the industry's best minds on social prescribing,” said Appleton. “When done right, social prescribing has the ability to improve health outcomes and reduce cost of care – both of which are critical given the rising mental health crisis and ever-ballooning costs of healthcare.”
Art Pharmacy’s proprietary smart-matching technology considers patients’ clinical profile, social needs, and preferences for arts engagement to address the shortage of mental health providers. The company integrates into the care continuum by incorporating patient monitoring and adherence programs. Art Pharmacy remains committed to reducing the operational and cost burden for payers and providers.
“I’m thrilled to join this amazing panel of people thinking outside the box to advance healthcare through arts and culture,” said Golden. “SXSW is about innovation and change-making across sectors, and so much positive change is possible when we link the arts and healthcare sectors to reimagine health and healthcare.”
The SXSW Conference explores the future of technology and culture. Professionals at every stage of their career will find opportunities for learning, development, inspiration, and networking. The event will feature more than 450 sessions spanning from technology, film, television, music, and beyond.
