Infographic: Patient Engagement in the Age of Social Media

June 2nd, 2017 by Melanie Matthews

Effective patient engagement has been linked with increased adherence to medical plans, reduced hospitalizations, and higher revenues, according to a new infographic by ChartLogic. One way to generate these results is by meeting patients where they spend the most time, i.e. social media.

When healthcare consumers connect with physicians or healthcare providers through one of the major social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc), their first experience should be a positive one, with good information on how to get in touch. Links to helpful health apps and portals are also appreciated. Developing a social strategy should be a cornerstone of every organization’s patient engagement strategy.

The infographic examines how practices can increase patient engagement, why it’s a good thing, and potential benefits.

Patient-centric interventions like population health management, health coaching, home visits and telephonic outreach are designed to engage individuals in health self-management—contributing to healthier clinical and financial results in healthcare’s value-based reimbursement climate.
