Why Does Patient Activation Matter?
Studies show that Patient Activation affects all Healthcare Stakeholders
- Patients with higher activation levels tend to engage in healthy behaviors, adhere to the plan of care and achieve better health outcomes.
- Providers who are measuring their patients’ activation levels can develop care plans specific to the patient’s ability to follow through on those plans. This is a way to become patient-centered, and to meet the patient where they are leading to higher satisfaction and retention levels.
- Healthcare Organizations are facing healthcare reform initiatives that are forcing delivery systems and providers to produce better outcomes with fewer resources. Activated patients represent a largely untapped resource that may benefit not only the delivery systems, but the entire population.
