Is "Patient Engagement" Just a Buzzword? A Physician's Perspective

Is "Patient Engagement" Just a Buzzword? A Physician's Perspective | Patient engagement | Scoop.it
Engaging to No Avail

 

[My recent experience as a patient] got me thinking about the hype surrounding the current patient “engagement” movement, in which patients are cast as vital members of the care team. The concept is embedded in the 2010 Affordable Care Act, and many industry groups have gotten on board with a range of initiatives aimed at making patients less passive and clinicians more respectful of patients’ wishes. The belief is that engaged patients are more likely to follow through on medication, lifestyle, and other health-related advice, thereby contributing to cornerstone objectives of US health care reform: improved clinical quality at lower cost and better individual and population health.

 

The debate continues amid many experiments to improve supportive systems for patients and their families, including educational materials, better hospital discharge instructions, Internet portals through which patients can read and learn from their medical records, community programs to promote healthy lifestyles, and, for people with complex health problems, assistance from care planners and health coaches.

 

The emotional language of the engagement movement—empowerment, respect, equality—carries such popular appeal that researchers’ cautions are easily swept aside. Engagement and its cousins—patient/family-centered care, patient activation, shared decision-making, patient as clinical team member—now routinely appear in promotional mailings, press releases, and at conference presentations, never mind the subject matter.

 

A case in point was the breakfast meeting I attended not long ago that had been billed as a forum on patient engagement. The actual presentations had more to do with marketing devices and consulting services to health care organizations. At no time did anyone mention patients except as objects of new approaches to health care delivery. Yet every speaker concluded by referencing the enormous benefit their device or clinical team-building exercise or infrastructure realignment would bring to patient-centered care and engagement.

 

It strikes me that there really is very little new in the concept of engagement, and simply inventing buzzy labels and slogans for what has always been part of the healing arts doesn’t contribute to understanding. A better strategy, in my opinion, would be to jettison jargon like “engagement” and go back to the plain language used by the people—you, me, the sick, and future sick—on whose behalf engagement theory is propounded: caring, empathy, kindness, and, above all, competence.

Pharma Guy's curator insight, November 26, 2014 6:55 AM


"There is a subtle form of power-politics implied in just about every deployment of 'patient engagement' you're likely to encounter that can serve to deprive the patient of authority rather than promote the autonomy of the patient," says Andrew Spong. For more on that, read Patient Engagement: Who's the Engager & Who's the Engagee? #Pharma or Patient?
