Do you know the difference patient engagement and patient activation? Patient engagement aims to educate people about their conditions and fully involve them in making decisions about their healthcare. Patient activation is a component of engagement where the patient is empowered with the skill, knowledge and confidence to take a more proactive role in their personal health management.
Patients who are actively involved in their personal health care can experience better health outcomes and incur lower costs. High-touch, tech-enabled partnerships are a proven approach for activating patients and can drive financial and operational improvements in Value-Based Care.
