To truly improve quality and outcomes, industry visionaries know they must equip care teams to engage patients more directly and consistently—through ongoing communication, better education and regular interaction. Patients, likewise, understand the power of becoming increasingly involved in their care. An Accenture survey of more than 1,100 U.S. patients, in fact, found that:
- 90% desire web-based access to health information and education
- 88% want to receive email reminders for preventative or follow-up care
- 76% want the option of email consultations with doctors
- 72% want to book, change or cancel physician appointments online
Allscripts offers the solutions to truly engage patients—to involve them as partners in their own care, and encourage the behavior and lifestyle changes to improve health and well being.
