Behavioral Health Patient Engagement:
Using Motivational Interviewing Techniques
and Strategies To Improve Outcomes

As the critical role of an engaged, activated healthcare consumer becomes more apparent in a value-based healthcare system, healthcare organizations are focusing on patient engagement and activation programs.

In a recent industry survey on trends in patient engagement, healthcare organizations reported that behavioral health conditions presented a particular challenge to patient engagement initiatives. However, there is robust evidence that motivational interviewing is a powerful approach for treating substance abuse, anxiety and depression.
