Patient Engagement

Beyond hoped-for improvements in clinical outcomes from actively engaged patients, patient engagement metrics now factor heavily into the equations of risk- and value-based reimbursement models. With continued anticipated growth in  these types of reimbursement models, healthcare organizations are continuing to invest and refine their patient engagement strategies.

With this as a backdrop, it's not surprising that a clear majority of respondents to HIN's recent Benchmark Survey on Patient Engagement have created formal patient engagement programs, with 4 percent of the remaining slated to launch a program in the coming year. Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) mine clinical data analytics to risk-stratify individuals for engagement efforts.

And, it will continue to be an organizational priority for healthcare organizations in the year ahead, according to a new study of 2018 healthcare industry concerns by the Healthcare Executive Group.
