Patient engagement is required to enhance the health of you population. From managing patients with chronic diseases, to managing episode based care plans, communication makes the difference in quality outcomes.
Consequently, bad things can happen to patients who are not proactively managed. Chronically ill patients who don’t regularly see their physicians or take their medications often take a trip to the emergency room or experience a hospital admissions that could have easily been avoided. Even patients who regularly visit their physician can have unexpected health problems.
On average, seniors (65+) visit their physicians 8 times a year which ultimately means they are responsible for the majority of their health care.
The relative health of a population is ultimately driven by the behavior of its patients. It is up to the patient whether they will take their medications, exercise, eat right, or visit their doctors when they should.
