Taking on the patient mindset, truly getting to know the patient and then incorporating the patient's caregiver team are ways that will better engage patients in their care, said Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, vice president of Connected Health at Partners HealthCare.

Taking on the patient mindset, truly getting to know the patient and then incorporating the patient’s caregiver team are ways that will better engage patients in their care, said Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, vice president of Connected Health at Partners HealthCare. He suggested that as patients and patient care evolves, so too should the methods for patient engagement.

“We are used to educating [patients] about diseases, we’re used to assuming that if I tell you something about your disease that you’ll be motivated to get healthier,” Dr Kvedar said.

However, the more the provider knows about the patient, the more he or she can target the message, he added.
