AHRQ will host a presentation highlighting how patient engagement in healthcare allows patients and their families to make well-informed decisions about their care and can lead to measurable improvements in safety and quality. Increased knowledge and understanding encourages patients to become active participants in their own care, and physicians are better able to treat patients in the most effective way possible, ultimately creating time and cost savings. During the webinar, expert speakers will share their research on developing digital healthcare innovations to better engage patients of all ages, including mobile health applications, wearables, and smart technology. CE/CME accreditation of this activity is pending; if approved, eligible providers can earn up to 1.5 CE/CME contact hours for participating in the live webinar.
At the conclusion of this Webinar, participants should be able to:
- Describe how wearable technology can be used to engage adolescents in managing their mental health.
- Identify how older adults can use self-management tools to make informed healthcare decisions.
- Discuss the importance of involving both patients and healthcare providers in the development and implementation of mobile interventions.
