Modifying Patients’ Behaviors to Optimize Disease Management Outcomes

You know the scenarios….An asthma sufferer who forgets to pack an inhaler or the coronary artery disease patient who can’t resist late-night snacking…One of the greatest roadblocks to effective disease management is getting patients to comply with doctors’ orders.

By using a combination of technology and psychology, healthcare providers, health plan administrators and employers can work to modify patients’ behaviors to optimize disease management outcomes. But to be successful, these programs require active patient engagement that emphasizes self-care, self-monitoring, and self-education. In short, programs that empower and motivate members to participate in their own healthcare. But how do you get patients to invest in themselves?


In “Modifying Patients’ Behaviors to Optimize Disease Management Outcomes,” you’ll get results-oriented strategies that healthcare organizations can use to bring about the appropriate attitude and behavior adjustment in patients to improve health status.
