Patient engagement is a collaborative process between healthcare providers and patients that involves patients in decision-making, self-care, and health management. This process can involve several steps, such as:
- Communication: Healthcare providers should establish clear and effective communication with patients, involving them in the decision-making process and explaining their health condition, treatment options, and any potential risks and benefits.
- Education: Healthcare providers should provide patients with the necessary education and online resources to make informed decisions about their health.
- Monitoring patient progress: Healthcare providers can monitor patient progress to ensure that patients adhere to their treatment plans and progress toward their health goals.
- Feedback: Healthcare providers should gather patient feedback on their experiences and adjust their approach to improve Patient engagement and outcomes.
Healthcare providers should use technology to engage patients in their care. Implement platforms that support telemedicine visits, remote monitoring, and mobile health applications that give patients real-time access to their health information.
