Patient engagement is among the top priorities for most healthcare organizations. Healthcare providers must interact with their patients and empower them with the right information at the right time. The emerging trend of the Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the world with its vast capabilities of connecting people and things with each other, and the healthcare industry is no exception, according to a new infographic by Vigyanix.

According to IDC Health Insights, 35 percent of healthcare organizations have already implemented IoT either in pilot or production stages. The infographic explores how IoT is helping to increase patient engagement.

Transformational patient-centered models emerging post-ACA are designed to succeed with a core of engaged, activated patients, yet enlistment of individuals in chronic care management, telehealth and other health enhancement interventions continues to challenge the healthcare industry.

2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Patient Engagement documents strategies, program components, successes and challenges of engaging patients and health plan members in self-care from 133 organizations responding to the 2015 Patient Engagement survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
