Engaging Patients and Families: How Consumers Value and Use Health IT

Nearly every stakeholder recognizes that greater patient centeredness and patient engagement are essential to the “Triple Aim” of federal health reform: improving care, improving health and reducing cost.


Presentation: Engaging Patients and Families: How Consumers Value and Use Health IT

A growing number of consumers are embracing electronic health records (EHRs), and the significant boost in online access to health information is increasing patient engagement in their care. In the last year, more than four in five patients with online access to their health records (86 percent) used their online records at least once – and more than half (55 percent) used them three or more times a year. Those are among the findings from a study released by the National Partnership for Women & Families.


What Health IT Means For Women

On average, women use the health care system to a greater extent than men, and thus stand to benefit more from greater access to their own health information and electronic tools that help them manage their health and coordinate their care.
