Here are some key benefits of engaged patients: 

  • Improved Health Outcomes: Engaged patients are more likely to follow their healthcare providers' advice, adhere to prescribed medications, and make positive lifestyle changes. This adherence to medical recommendations can lead to better health outcomes and overall well-being. 

  • Better Disease Management: Patients who are engaged in their healthcare are more likely to effectively manage chronic conditions, monitor their symptoms, and seek timely medical attention, leading to better control of diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. 

  • Enhanced Communication: Engaged patients tend to have better communication with their healthcare providers. They are more likely to ask questions, express concerns, and actively participate in discussions about their health, leading to a more productive doctor-patient relationship. 

  • Preventive Care: Engaged patients are proactive about preventive healthcare measures, such as vaccinations, screenings, and regular check-ups. This proactive approach can help in early detection of potential health issues and prevent complications. 

  • Increased Patient Satisfaction: Patients who are actively engaged in their care often report higher levels of satisfaction with their healthcare experiences. Feeling heard, respected, and involved in decision-making processes contributes to overall satisfaction with the healthcare services received. 

  • Efficient Healthcare Utilization: Engaged patients are more likely to utilize healthcare services efficiently. They are better equipped to determine when medical attention is necessary, reducing unnecessary emergency room visits and healthcare costs. 

  • Reduction in Medical Errors: Engaged patients who actively participate in their care by asking questions and clarifying information can help prevent misunderstandings and reduce the risk of medical errors, enhancing patient safety. 

  • Cost Savings: By actively managing their health, engaged patients may experience fewer complications, hospitalizations, and emergency room visits. This can lead to cost savings for both patients and the healthcare system. 

  • Empowerment and Confidence: Engaged patients are empowered to make informed decisions about their health. This empowerment boosts their confidence, reduces anxiety, and fosters a sense of control over their healthcare journey. 

  • Healthier Lifestyle Choices: Engaged patients are more likely to adopt healthier lifestyle choices, such as maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding harmful habits  like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. These lifestyle changes contribute to long-term health and well-being. 

  • Support for Caregivers: Engaged patients often have a support system, including family members and caregivers, who are also actively involved in the patient's healthcare. This collaborative approach can improve the patient's overall quality of life and ease the burden on caregivers.

Who benefits from Better MED Visit?

We are confident that everyone will find something helpful from Better MED Visit education. It is especially helpful for anyone who is overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated when visiting a doctor.  

Patients can become frustrated by doctor’s visits for various reasons. Here are some comment factors that contribute to patient frustration that can be addressed with healthcare communication coaching: 

  • Short Appointment Times: Some patients feel rushed during their appointments, with doctors having limited time to address their concerns thoroughly. We will teach you how to present your concerns in a clear, concise manner so all information is shared within a short timeframe. 

  • Lack of Communication: Poor communication between doctors and patients, including not listening to patients' concerns, not explaining medical information clearly, or not answering questions, can lead to frustration. We teach patients how to talk, so doctors will listen.  

  • Inadequate Information: Patients may be frustrated if they don't receive enough information about their condition, treatment options, or next steps. We teach all the questions to ask to ensure you have the information needed to be fully informed.  

  • Dismissive Attitudes: Patients may become frustrated if they feel their concerns are not taken seriously or if doctors dismiss their symptoms or pain. We teach how to vocalize real concerns so doctors will listen.  

  • Lack of Personalized Care: Patients may feel frustrated if they perceive that their care is not personalized to their specific needs or preferences. We teach what needs and values should be included in your conversations with doctors and how to verbalize them as a patient. 

  • Lack of Empathy: Patients appreciate doctors who show empathy and understanding, and a perceived lack of empathy can lead to frustration. Learning to be organized, concise and specific with your symptoms will allow more time during the visit to talk about emotions, concerns, and goals of your care.  

 

Addressing these common sources of frustration can help improve the doctor-patient relationship and overall patient experience.
