Patient engagement leads to more effective use of health IT

The federal government wants meaningful use of health IT, but surveys show it won't happen unless patient engagement improves. This podcast examines what doctors can do.

What happens when patients and providers are given a secure network and the means to communicate electronically? Patient engagement in treatment and care increases, as does satisfaction with the services received, according to surveys conducted by the Group Health Research Institute.
