PENSACOLA, Fla. - March 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Changes in healthcare today seem to drive patients toward taking a more active role in their own healthcare.This change in the role of the patient is called patient activation. The ongoing cooperation in their own healthcare is called patient engagement. Many states are now incorporating patient engagement into their health policies because when patients are engaged in their own care, health care increases and healthcare costs decrease. “Patient engagement is the blockbuster drug of the century.”¹

Technology is a great way for patients and providers to engage. eHabilitate is an easy to use patient portal that allows communication between patients and providers outside of normal office visits. The website shows patients exactly how to perform a variety of stretches and exercises. It also has capabilities of appointment scheduling, patient feedback and reporting. Zack Budryk of Fierce Healthcare says that electronic messaging and emphasizing pain reduction are great ways to engage patients. He further explains that messaging pleases patients with its convenience and immediacy.² eHabilitate extends providers’ care to patients by
