National eHealth Collaborative Survey Results
The results of a survey given to 450 members of the National eHealth Collaborative on July 16th were released and published by EMR Thoughts. The goal of the survey was to “build an understanding of consumer engagement strategies currently underway and planned for the future,” according to a press release. There were many interesting findings from this survey. The primary goals for consumer engagement with health IT included the following:
68% – improve health outcomes
66% – deliver information to patients
59% – enable consumers to take more responsibility for their health
59% – reduce healthcare costs
57% – improve consumers’ experience in interacting with our organization
Are any of you in behavioral health asking your consumers if they feel the use of electronic medical records is providing them greater access and participation in their services and records? If so, can you share some of your findings with us?
