The growth of the healthcare sector demands some important changes. Healthcare organizations have to address these changes properly to provide better service to patients. Today, patient engagement has become an important factor to succeed in the healthcare sector. Patient engagement has reduced numerous problems, such as readmission and confusion over the process of medication. Readmission process increases the healthcare cost on a large scale. Medicare Payment Advisory Commission has mentioned that 75 percent of readmissions can be ended through better care coordination. Patient engagement can eradicate senior people's concern about the process of their healthcare. Patient engagement is a valuable weapon to keep themselves connected with healthcare providers. This connection will make them able to manage their own health.

At HiMMS19, CipherHealth will address the topic of patient engagement experience. Patient engagement activity is not constrained to the hospital premises. Most of the hospitals think that HCAHPS is the ultimate indicator of patient satisfaction. So, they often underestimate the need for patient engagement, which shouldn’t be ignored.
