Engaged patients are more likely to keep appointments and take an active role in their personal health.
Patients miss appointments for many reasons, but the result is always the same: Patients risk their health, and physicians lose out on revenue.
Physician practices that are able to engage their patients at every stage of the care continuum will not only see improved patient outcomes, but also have more opportunities to realize payments.
Patient engagement impacts community health and individual outcomes, as well as the financial health of the provider organization.
Most patients are familiar with the clipboard stacked with forms, and few people greet it with much enthusiasm.
Physicians who want to grow and improve their practices must learn how to improve engagement with their current patient population.
