Free Download: Patient Engagement Trends: Positive Payoffs from Patients Activated in Their Healthcare

The perennial challenge for healthcare organizations as they continue to develop and refine programs aimed at improving healthcare quality while reducing costs is engaging patients in these initiatives. Actively engaged patients have been shown to have lower costs and improved outcomes. The percentage of healthcare organizations with a formal patient engagement program inched slightly higher between 2017 and 2019 with 75 percent reporting they have a formal program in 2019, compared with 71 percent in 2017, according to the Patient Engagement Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
