In testimony before the House Committee on Ways and Means’s Health Subcommittee in 2004, Dr. Charles Safran, President of the American Medical Informatics Association said, “In our country, patients are the most underutilized resource, and they have the most at stake. They want to be involved and they can be involved. Their participation will lead to better medical outcomes at lower costs with dramatically higher patient/customer satisfaction.”
This statement would have been pertinent yesterday or 30 years ago – finding ways to engage patients in their own care is a fundamental challenge that has only grown in importance over time. The current healthcare system does not encourage participation, but as the system becomes more patient- and family-centered, the challenge of Dr. Safran’s statement becomes more of a reality.
With the growth in the Patient Centered Health Care Home, there is a model that can change the culture of our current healthcare system in dynamic ways. The Patient Centered Health Care Home recognizes the importance of the patient and the responsibility of the healthcare team to advocate and empower consumers to be active participants in their health and healthcare.
Led by a primary care physician and supported by a network of diverse healthcare professionals, the medical home calls for increased patient engagement, which promotes patient involvement and shared decision making between the provider and the patient. The results are improvement of health and more efficient use of healthcare resources.
In our continued series on the Patient Centered Health Care Home, we will bring together a panel who will share insights into advocacy and patient engagement advances.
About the Webinar
Engaging people in their health is widely recognized as critical to better health, improved care and more efficient use of healthcare resources. URAC defines patient engagement where practices and services enable patients to positively participate in their health and healthcare to the extent they are able to obtain the greatest benefit from the healthcare services available to them.
Engagement signifies that a person is involved in a process through which (s)he harmonizes robust information and professional advice with his own needs, preferences and abilities in order to prevent, manage or cure disease.
Patient engagement can yield clinical and financial results by addressing areas that account for the challenges that continue to plague the system. They include:
- Patient satisfaction
- Patient flow
- Medication adherence
- Disease Prevention/chronic condition management.
Ultimately, patient engagement can improve compliance and make for better decisions, resulting in a better overall healthcare experience for all parties involved.
