Patient’s Choice ~ Using Technology to Drive the New World of Consumer Driven Care & Treatment Decision Support
The increasing role of consumers in the post-ACA and high-deductible world is well documented, especially with high health care costs and up to 30% of health care documented as inappropriate, wasteful or harmful. Consumers and providers need to routinely employ a consistent process of Shared Decision-Making (SDM) with a common language to have the consumer choose the best possible treatment based on medical evidence and patient values and preferences. Explore the compelling value of SDM, learn how big data is driving technology-enabled tools designed to bring evidence, patient-reported outcomes and individual preferences together to propel patients and providers onto a path of higher quality care at a lower cost.
Attendees will explore:
The historical evidence that shows why and how Shared Decision Making, in both current and emerging models, has become a national standard of health care
How to identify key data that target opportunities and estimates the value of SDM for any population
How SDM fits in your consumerism strategy to engage members, reduce inappropriate care, improve health and reduce costs
