Many patients believe that they should be more involvement in the care of their health. A feeling patients have been having for a long time, unfortunately. Patients want to feel more involved in the major decisions that are made regarding their care. They also want to feel like they are being heard when things are not going right for them. No patient wants to feel ignored, but unfortunately, this does happen from time to time. Thankfully, there have been many advancements recently in shifting more power to the patient over the future of their care.
Many within the healthcare industry are very cautious about the things they share with patients because they feel like patient empowerment will result in a more demanding patient instead of one gaining their independence. When all stakeholders in healthcare partner with patients, meetings and consultations will be better and smarter instead of being longer and frustrating.
For the life science industry, this means educating not only patients, but also caregivers, healthcare providers, hospital systems and payers. When the healthcare community is armed with information and resources they can help the patient become more empowered in their own health decisions and outcomes.
