A term that is new to many people is “Patient Engagement”. In the changing world of health care, more information will become transparent to consumers and therefore, consumers will be able to take on more responsibility for their health and wellness–which is a good thing! The issue that is challenging is how to build a bridge between current practices and future behavior changes that will be needed? Mary Minniti discusses these changes and what they mean to consumers and what actions they will need to take.

3 Key Points:

  1. Patient Engagement means that patients and families will have to take more responsibility for their own health status.
  2. There are key benefits to being more engaged as it will afford a better quality of life and allow you to save health care dollars.
  3. New laws are on the horizon that will have implications for your health and your pocketbook by building in incentives for healthy living.
