Why is Patient Engagement Important in Improving Healthcare?

Effective patient engagement is essential in healthcare. It can improve the patient’s overall health.  Here are some of the benefits it can provide:

  • Improved patient satisfaction and care—Patients who have a voice in their treatment feel respected and heard. This leads them to be more activated with their treatment plan and medication adherence
  • Improves patient’s long-term health and well-being—When a patient is engaged in their health, they can make better long-term choices when managing their health and well-being. They can also catch symptoms of illness and disease in their earliest states and will seek treatment before it becomes an issue
  • Reduces overall healthcare costs—Engaged patients suffering from chronic diseases who are adherent to their treatment and medication regimens can save the U.S. healthcare system over $300 billion dollars a year
