How Patient Engagement Technology is Revolutionizing Personal Health and Wellness

Patient engagement technology encompasses a comprehensive ecosystem of connected devices and systems to improve an individual’s overall health and well-being. This technology has rapidly advanced in recent years, with connected safety devices and applications becoming more prevalent among individuals, caregivers, and organizations looking to improve health outcomes through clinical trials.

The Advantages of Patient Engagement

Patient engagement enhances overall health and the success of clinical trials by utilizing IoT-based devices, mobile applications and systems to provide remote health and wellness care and data. One of the ways that providers have sought to improve patient involvement in their own care is through remote patient monitoring (RPM) programs. These include devices that patients use at home to take their measurements and share the information with their healthcare providers. Devices can transmit vital sign data and daily living activities to providers or caregivers, who can act upon the information when necessary. Beyond RPM programs, innovative applications that proactively reach out to patients to ask questions, confirm readings, and send reminders have been proven to provide many benefits. Some of these include increased patient involvement in their healthcare, improved patient engagement with their providers, reduce short-term hospitalizations, prevent or delay complications from the disease in the long term, and lower healthcare costs for both patients and providers.

Patient Engagement Technology Extends Beyond RPM Solutions

Connected multipurpose devices, and other connected devices and applications can also be utilized to improve personal health and wellness. These technologies can protect users, collect critical data such as location, movement metrics, and fall detection, and facilitate two-way communication. By aiding patients in remembering to take medication on time, eating and exercising regularly, monitoring sleep patterns, and reducing loneliness, these technologies extend beyond RPM solutions in caring for individuals and their loved ones daily.

Enhancing Clinical Trials and Research with Connected Personal Health Solutions

The need for connected personal health solutions to improve clinical trial outcomes and research is increasing. A recent National Library of Medicine report estimated that 30% of patients drop out of clinical trials, with non-compliance costing between $600,000 and $8 million daily. Improving compliance by even 1% through connected personal health solutions can significantly impact the success of clinical trials and bring advanced medical solutions to market faster. Becklar’s AI-powered Engagement platform can help improve patient participation in these programs by reminding patients to take their medications on time, check their equipment and even get started with their program more quickly to help improve completion rates.

Increasing Patient Involvement in Healthcare through Technology

The primary objective of wellness checks, connected safety devices and apps, and RPM is to increase patient involvement in their healthcare. With technology and AI-powered solutions, healthcare providers can easily equip their patients with the tools they require to become more engaged, active participants in their healthcare. These systems enable patients to play a more active role in their healthcare and increase the likelihood of positive health outcomes and successful clinical trials.

Final Thoughts

Patient engagement technology is transforming personal health and wellness by providing a variety of connected devices and systems designed to improve an individual’s overall health and well-being. Proactive interactions through technology can help to encourage patient involvement in their own care, improve their overall health, and reduce healthcare costs for both patients and providers.

With the growth and acceptance of other connected devices and applications, such as integrated multipurpose devices, two-way communication tools, and AI-assisted applications, patients can become more active participants in their healthcare. By leveraging patient engagement technology in clinical trials, advanced medical solutions can get to market more quickly and economically, driving better outcomes.

As these technologies advance and gain wider acceptance among patients and healthcare providers, we can anticipate even more significant breakthroughs in the future of the healthcare industry.
