Active patients are likely to engage in preventative behaviors such as vaccines and yearly visits, stick to their meds, understand their health, and comprehend and navigate the healthcare system.
Fremont, CA: Patient participation and activation are critical for optimal health. Patient activation & patient engagement aren't interchangeable terms, and patient activation is a subset of patient engagement. Patient involvement and activation are critical to optimal health. Active patients are likely to engage in preventative behaviors such as vaccines and yearly visits, stick to their meds, understand their health, and comprehend and navigate the healthcare system.
Telehealth improves patient engagement by giving individuals tools to participate in their health actively. Rather than providing treatment at a single moment in time, it gives physicians the tools they need to engage with their patients and form partnerships.
Let's check how Telehealth Increases Patient Activation
• Meets the patient where they are
Every patient is unique, necessitating a one-of-a-kind patient activation approach. Whatever patients need to participate in their treatment is likely to be different from what another patient requires. Every telehealth treatment plan may get tailored to each patient's specific needs.
• Provides more opportunities for patient-provider collaboration
Virtual visits allow patient-provider communication to extend beyond a single moment in time. It's significant because it facilitates the formation of a relationship between the patient and the physician. Telehealth enhances access to healthcare because it is not location-based.
• It helps the patient understand their health holistically.
A complete picture of a patient's situation is required to reach excellent health. Monitoring their patients' health holistically enables the practitioner to see what may be contributing to bad results and intervene or adjust the care plan accordingly. Because they understand the numerous aspects at play—activity, nutrition, sleep, symptoms, medicine, stress, and so on—a patient who knows their health holistically has greater influence over their health outcomes. Telehealth & remote patient monitoring enables patients to watch their status over time, identifying and comprehending significant trends.
