Using Patient-Facing Technologies to Improve the Quality of Patient Care
This paper, published by LodgeNet Healthcare, explains that the federal government has introduced initiatives to improve health care, promote efficiencies and reduce costs under the America Recovery and Reinvestment Act, to be implemented by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
One of the key components of the programme aimed at healthcare transformation includes patient and family engagement.
Patient engagement is achieved with existing technology that has the capacity to empower and inform all patient groups that come through the hospital.
The paper recommends that hospitals should engage and empower patients using tools available today such as an iTV-based patient engagement system.
