Digital tools and online health services poised to play key role in consumer health management, study finds - Manhattan Research

Digital tools and online health services poised to play key role in consumer health management, study finds - Manhattan Research | FibroGal Agency LLC | Scoop.it
Health engagement online deepening at a time when consumers are expected to take a greater role in their care

 

October 10, 2013, New York, NY – Consumers have long used health websites and other online tools to gather information about conditions and treatments. Now they are broadening their health activity online, using Internet resources to support healthcare decision-making and to manage conditions, a new study shows.

Forty-five percent of online U.S. adults with a chronic condition say that the Internet is essential to managing their disease or condition, according to the Cybercitizen Health® U.S. 2013 study from healthcare market research and advisory firm Manhattan Research.

“We’ve hit an inflection point in the way consumers use the internet for health,” said Rory Stanton, Consumer Insights Analyst at Manhattan Research. “They are going beyond seeking-information to using tools and services to manage the day-to-day aspects of care. That’s good news in this post–healthcare reform environment, in which digital engagement of consumers for example via patient portals and telehealth will be a key to success.”

The study also found that online content and services influence how consumers approach health management for themselves and their dependents, with 44 percent of online consumers agreeing that the Internet is essential for their health and medical decision-making.

These and other study findings highlight key opportunities for various health stakeholders, such as pharmaceutical companies, provider networks, and payers, to provide technology-based value added services and empower deeper engagement from end users.

"An inflection point": a turn actually, in patients' use of the internet: from seeking information to using tools  and services to manage the day-to-day aspects of care.

Actually, health care really turns into "care for health"!  It will impact health care systems when patients pick up their own responsibility for thier proper care for health. Let's see how this evolves!

Actually too, ehealth will connect patients with medical professional which will support them!

The expanding roles for patient navigators

The expanding roles for patient navigators | FibroGal Agency LLC | Scoop.it

"Patient Navigators are becoming more commonplace in hospitals these days. Previously only used incancer settings or with low-income patients with barriers to care, navigators skills are now being employed in many areas of healthcare, so the job outlook for patient navigation is looking good. Starting October 1st, a new breed of patient navigators will even be helping out with the Affordable Care Act’s healthcare insurance marketplace and bring another new definition to the role.

 

Harold P. Freeman, MD originally founded the patient navigator role in 1990, and his studies found that the use of navigation helped five-year survival rates in breast cancer increase from 39 to 70 percent. Some hospitals have spread their oncology nurse navigator programs to other clinical areas like open heart patients, while others try to focus on Medicaid patients with chronic diseases."
