Outpatient therapy providers are under tremendous pressure to improve patient outcomes while at the same time lowering the cost of care. Although much of the focus around value-based care has been on driving clinician performance to meet key measures, it is just as crucial to look at ways to improve patient engagement as you evaluate strategies for the future. After all, studies show that engaged patients lead to better overall outcomes.
Patient engagement, however, is also one of the toughest areas to manage. While therapy is a critical component in the healing process, many patients are dealing with an injury or condition that will require weeks, if not months, of therapy. This can impact a patient’s motivation and willingness to follow their treatment through to the end. The important question to ask is “How can I successfully motivate my patients every step of the way?”
