Marty Minniti discusses the following changes that consumers will need to make and how to use new tools to assist them in taking good care of themselves.
Step 1: The “new normal” in healthcare requires each individual to know more and act more as a consumer in regard to health care and your health.
Step 2: Key information at all times- designate a primary family member who knows and has access to all your health information and develop a plan to improve 1% per day.
Step 3: Understand what’s your role vs. your doctor- doctors can’t do it all . Medicine is 25% of overall improvements in health- daily choices you control and small steps improve health for the long run. The other 75% is up to you!
Step 4: Keep it simple- find what works for you.
3 Key Points:
- Patient Engagement–taking responsibility and control of your health- is important to getting good outcomes.
- Patient Engagement is important to attaining your health goals and your good health is important to good family , community and employer.
- There are many options for new and improved tools and gadgets that you can use to support your mission to have the best health that you can get with a combination of using these tools and working with your healthcare team.
