Learning Objectives • Describe key elements of patient and consumer engagement and health activation from a variety of stakeholder perspectives. • Discuss patient activation and the role of measurement • Learn what successful providers and practices do to begin and sustain a program for patient activation, including culture and behavior change. • Design your organization and systems to engage patients and families more effectively and practice in a truly patient-centered way. • Understand some of the innovative approaches taken to activate patients and how to scale those innovations. . 3

STEPS™ & Patient Activation Relationship to Patient Activation Satisfaction and experience with clinicians improves with higher patient activation Patients lower in activation account for the vast majority of readmissions Patients higher in activation are significantly more likely to seek and use information Self-management (screenings, adherence, nutrition, etc.) improves significantly as activation increases Utilization and costs decline with increasing activation 4

Achieving STEPS™ Objectives through Activation More activated patients = better health and lower utilization ► Know a patient’s level of activation to improve interactions and outcomes ► Allocate resources to where the return on activation is greatest ► Help the low activated access and use information ► Tailor support and education to a patient’s level of activation ► When activation increases Triple Aim goals are realized 21
