This curriculum will instruct health center learners on the changing role of the consumer/patient within healthcare in which the point of diagnoses and care is being increasingly shifted from the classical care provider setting to a more patient-centered model of health services. This shift in perspective and responsibilities is largely being stimulated by a critical mass in personal health information technology innovation and development, including patient portals, health apps, web-enabled medical devices, personal fitness trackers and remote health monitors.
These materials will provide health center staff with skills for navigating Electronic Patient Engagement strategies that include being better informed on: 1) patient activation and patient engagement; 2) incorporation of patient engagement tools and strategies into the organizational workflow; 3) evaluation of patient needs, satisfaction, and activation; and 4) current tools and services available for electronic patient engagement.
