What does patient engagement mean in healthcare, and how do you define it?

Todd Johnson’s work has always been about how we can make a patient’s experience more continuous. One of the most significant opportunities Todd recognizes in the use of these integration systems is behavior change. Information processing may be overwhelming, and this is why moving to digital systems will make this easier. The outcome is a win-win relationship for both patients and medical staff. Patients will have better clinical experiences; meanwhile, the team will save time. 

Patient engagement is increasing over time with these technologies. Tune in to this episode to know much more about where we are headed.
