Patient Engagement – Not What the Doctor Ordered Anymore
By: Johanna Epstein, Vice President, Strategic Services, Culbert Healthcare Solutions
An “engaged” patient is a healthier patient, with fewer medical issues over the course of one’s lifetime.
“Engaged” patients reduce the overall cost of our nation’s healthcare delivery system and increases financial incentives for physicians and hospitals.
If we truly believe the above statements to be true; then why aren’t more patients “engaged” and why don’t more healthcare organizations make “patient engagement” a priority?
