Digital patient engagement: 4 ways it impacts the bottom line
Improving patient engagement is a top priority for health care systems. In fact, digital patient engagement solutions make up one of the fastest-growing segments of healthcare technology. And for good reason. When patients are enabled and encouraged to be more active in their health, better outcomes happen — for the patient and the provider.
An industry shift: How does digital patient engagement improve healthcare?
Digital patient engagement technology is accelerating change in the healthcare industry, and putting the focus where it belongs: on the patient. By activating patients to become partners in their care, today’s tech tools can transform the healthcare model to one that is preventive, personalized, and participatory.
What are the benefits of digital patient engagement?
The ultimate goal of patient engagement: Enhance the patient experience. Consumer-empowering technology makes that happen, but the impact doesn’t stop there.
For starters: A better experience, and a better bottom line
With the right engagement technology in place, patients have an easy-to-use platform to ask questions, get updated, and stay connected to their care. Studies show that patients connected to their care have better healthcare experiences.
Technology provides the ability to connect to patients where they are and educate them on their health, as it happens. This direct digital line to their provider builds trust and provides the confidence they need to accept and adhere to a treatment plan.
Effective patient engagement leads to healthier outcomes. From taking care of an injury to taking medications as prescribed, staying connected through technology can help reduce the likelihood of complications and unnecessary office visits.
BETTER BOTTOM LINE
By utilizing digital patient engagement tools, health systems can increase patient satisfaction and retention, resulting in fewer no-shows. Technology can also streamline administrative processes, reducing time spent on manual tasks to free up staff to focus on patient care.
