Exploring the Three Levels of Patient Engagement
June 20, 2019 12:00pm-1:00pm PST
Patients who are actively engaged in their healthcare tend to demonstrate better health outcomes, and some evidence shows lower healthcare costs. With the rising costs associated with chronic disease, it is critical to understand how to engage patients, and how to best support them in making prescribed lifestyle changes. There are three levels of engagement that include: direct care, organizational structure, and policies. Each of these has a significant impact on patient engagement and will be explored.
- Describe three factors that influence patient engagement.
- Define the engagement continuum, and assess where you or your organization currently fall on the continuum.
- Describe at least three barriers to patient engagement, and define one solution.
