Better care through patient engagement

Better care through patient engagement © CureMD Healthcare

Patient care • It is always best when your patients ask questions • This means that they are concerned and are putting in an effort to improve their physical condition and well-being • These patients are more aware and want to be involved in their health management, especially when it comes to making health-related • Not every physician is comfortable with the idea of shared responsibility or patient empowerment • As healthcare management and patient cases become more and more complex, an additional participant willing to share responsibility with the physician does not seem such a bad idea

Patient care • There are devices like health activity monitors, blood glucose monitors, real-time heart rate trackers, mobile health apps and most recently headphones with built-in blood pressure monitoring • All of these advancements have been driven by a modern patient’s need to monitor their own health • Compliance is one of the biggest challenges of managing patients • When patients are on their own, they are often struggling with changing lifestyle regimes related to diet or exercise, which can affect the quality of data being sent to their physicians

Patient care • Mobile health applications can serve as useful reminders for managing patient health, as they serve as an intermediary between a doctor and its patient • Through Mobile Health apps, patients can track their blood sugar levels, check weekly trends and are able to make adjustments to their insulin intake without consulting a doctor • Similarly, upcoming technology will help patients suffering from chronic asthma by generating an automatic alert to increase their medication dosage and at the same time alert their physician for an urgent appointment
