What is Patient Engagement and How Can it Be Improved for the Patient
A study by Health Affairs defines patient engagement by looking at patient engagement as patient activation, a process that healthcare organizations play an active role in.


Communication Strategies to Engage the Patient

Healthcare providers will increasingly need to be trained on the effective use of communication strategies to drive behaviour change. This will necessitate an understanding of the whole patient and the personal drivers for behavior change. Suggested strategies for engagement in this article include: patient education, shared decision-making, motivation interviewing, and empathy; allowing healthcare providers to guide and empower their patients to participate in chronic disease prevention.

Progress in the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) Arena

Wearable IoMT biosensing devices allows for the collection of biometric data in real-time, enabling both healthcare providers and patients to actively participate in healthcare management driven by the goal of disease prevention. Connected to smartphones and cloud-based apps, physiological and bio-sensing smart devices continuously measure, record, and provide access to vital data. This article suggests that combining biosensor technology with physiological technology, can produce a more holistic view of a patient’s condition. Read More...

COVID Spurred Patient Engagement with Remote Patient Monitoring
The pandemic has enabled the increased the use of remote patient monitoring and telehealth to monitor and manage health at home, but future innovation is needed to meet consumer needs.


What the Inpatient Care Industry Needs Right Now
By Sarah Daren

The COVID-19 pandemic affected virtually every industry on the planet in some way or another. There were a select few that actually evolved due to the pandemic, such as internet communications and delivery services, but most industries were negatively affected, with healthcare being at the top of that list. Read More...


Healthcare Ecosystems of the Future
The healthcare ecosystems of the future, like other ecosystems, will be centered on the consumer, in this case the patient. The capabilities and services that form the healthcare ecosystems of the future may include: traditional modalities of care, home and self-care, social care, daily engagement and tracking, and financial support.


Leveraging Digital Innovation for a Patient-centric, Value-added Experience
Telehealth was once considered a path for urgent care transactions. However, in 2020, more consumers had scheduled video visits with their primary care physician or specialist than for urgent care. Patients increasingly believe they are entitled to their choice of healthcare providers, coverage and digital-health experiences.


Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permanente to scale up hospital-at-home efforts with $100M investment into Medically Home
Medically Home installs communications devices, remote patient monitoring devices, emergency response systems and other supplies such as durable medical equipment in a patient’s home so that providers can treat high-acuity patients outside of the costly hospital setting.


5 Strategies for Streamlining Patient Engagement in Health Care
Moving forward, patients expect to be involved in every step of the health care delivery process, from initial visit to diagnosis and treatment. Health care administrators are tasked with streamlining the patient experience, using advanced strategies and integrated technology solutions.

Three Important Lessons To Improve Digital Health Delivery:
The rapid use of digital health services has progressed well, with most patients embracing virtual visits with their doctors. Moving forward there are a number of opportunities for improvement including: Whole person, longitudinal care. Integration of labs and diagnostics to improve workflows, access and patient education. And the development of virtual-first strategies.

Health Innovations Driven by the Pandemic
Innovation is being driven by not only the need to address the spread of the virus, but to continue to safely address the variety of other patient needs.  Read more about the creative innovations arising in the face of COVID-19 including: 

The Use of Drones for Medical Supplies Delivery
Apps the can Detect COVID-19 Virtually
Using Special Stethoscopes to Listen to Patient Hearts and Transmit Lung Images
Low-Cost Ventilators
Hospitals Using VR for Training Purposes
3D Printed Nasal Testing Swabs
Using Robots in the Hospital for Delivery of COVID-19 Supplies and Tests
Leveraging Chatbots to Answer Questions and Check Symptoms


Using Food Prescriptions to Address Access and Chronic Disease
What is food security? The Food and Agriculture Organization's definition of food security is “ when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.”

How can we ensure food security for people? Perhaps by first engaging local stakeholders to find local solutions including local farmers, local healthcare institutions, and other local community-based agencies.
