Better Care & Lower Costs: Exploring the Promise of Patient Engagement

03/05/10

Engaging consumers more directly in their care may improve health outcomes and help control the costs of care. This briefing, cosponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and the AARP Public Policy Institute, focused on the potential for changing consumer behavior to promote the use of effective interventions and discourage unnecessary care. It addressed questions such as: How promising are consumer engagement techniques such as patient self-management, shared decision-making and value-based insurance design? What changes in the health care system are likely to empower consumers versus creating new barriers to care?
