AUSTIN, Texas - July 23, 2019 - PRLog -- Bob Baurys and Mark Stinson, experts in health and medical communications, have launched a new book, Patient Activation: The 4 Steps to Move Health Care Consumers from Awareness to Activation.

The concept of patient activation has gained credence among clinicians, academics, and think-tanks worldwide. Now in this book, Baurys and Stinson share a fully-integrated system to move patients from awareness to action. It includes a step-wise process supported by a set of customized software and proprietary tools. This system and 4-point model were designed to standardize and automate the key functions.

Baurys says, "You'll learn the definitions behind the 4-point process of Patient Activation. We also are very transparent in sharing how 83bar clients (as well as other leading health care organizations) successfully use the model in a wide range of initiatives."

Stinson added, "And along the way, we want to give you specific techniques for applying the Patient Activation in your own organization."

In the book's introduction, Ben Chiarelli, founder and CEO of Cellibre, writes, "Helping to bring patients the confidence to take a more active role in managing their health has always been a limitation — until today. What if we could treat each patient as what they are: a unique n of 1? The patient activation approach is truly personalized care."
