The Next Generation of Patient & Family Engagement
Influenced by the fundamentals of precision medicine, where personalized medical treatment is data-driven and guided by individual variables, Precision Engagement replaces the one-size-fits-all approach of the past with a new model that accounts for each person’s unique needs across care settings. http://bit.ly/GWNprecisionengagementhealthcare
Engaged patients ask questions, consider options, share feedback and make treatment decisions together with their providers. Variables like cultural differences, communication styles, health literacy, tech savviness and psychosocial support all affect how information is internalized and acted upon. Precision Engagement suggests that by factoring these in, clinicians can tailor education and interventions to promote a more collaborative and participatory experience.
The far-reaching benefits of this approach include:
higher patient and family satisfaction increased success rates improved continuity in care and quality of life lower friction for hospital and technical teams better clinical and financial performance across the health organization
Guided by The Six Imperatives for Precision Engagement, GetWellNetwork is reinventing patient-centered care.
