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
