“Patient engagement” has not gotten the attention of the healthcare industry to the degree that other industries focus on their customers. What should focus providers’ attention is the magnetic lure of money. New reimbursement models in healthcare are moving from FFS towards patient engagement because long-term healthcare costs can be reduced by improved patient healthcare behaviors.

Dave’s post, in turn, was inspired by the observations of Leonard Kish, currently the Marketing and Communications Group chair, Co-Producer, of the Collaborative Health consortium. Mr. Kish contributes to Opensource.com and HL7standards.com. Kish has probably saved thousands of lives by writing “THE BLOCKBUSTER DRUG OF THE CENTURY: AN ENGAGED PATIENT”: http://www.hl7standards.com/blog/2012/08/28/drug-of-the-century/. This post should be read by every practicing physician. We tip our hat to Mr. Kish for his keen strategic insight.
