Understanding the trial or treatment is imperative to ensure the patient’s investment in the trial/product. So the specialists take time with the patient to talk through all the steps required. They even go as far as sending reminders for medical appointments or tests.
So what can you expect from patient activation?
It’s a win-win situation
The patient activation approach brings two-fold benefits.
- It’s really about the patients: With well-informed patients come quicker and more confident decisions for their health. It’s a better understanding of what is required and quicker relief for them.
- Clients win, too: With more invested patients come better retention and fewer dropouts down the road.
Patient activation is win-win for patients and clients alike. Are you ready to take on this approach? To learn more, visit our Patient Activation Hub, where you can read, listen and watch resources about patient activation.
