Drive healthy outcomes with stronger patient engagement
As healthcare costs continue to soar, the role of the empowered, engaged patient becomes more critical than ever before. When patients are informed, motivated, and actively contributing to their own care, their health is drastically improved.
To assist in your patient engagement activities, we offer tools and services that can be seamlessly integrated in your engagement process. These offerings are designed to:
- Communicate the value of patient engagement
- Provide patient education resources
- Simplify every step of the way for the patient and providers
Patient engagement is fundamental to achieving the "triple aim:"
|Improve patient experience|
Increasingly, reimbursement models for health care organizations and healthcare providers (HCP's), including The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, link patient experience metrics to reimbursement.
|Advance population health|
Health systems and HCP's must meet new industry standards that emphasize outcomes instead of services delivered and support meeting quality metrics, such as HEDIS and STAR scores.
Focusing on patient engagement can improve patient adherence to treatment recommendations, thereby enhancing efficiency, reducing overall costs of patient care, and improving patient retention.
