"Our hope is that patients will manage their disease better if they are empowered."
Roberta Kordish RN, MSN, CNS, Vice President Health and Care Management
Health care consumerism is a phenomenon that is here to stay. People are increasingly becoming health care consumers, searching the internet for the best physicians and hospitals to treat their specific condition. People are also bringing this information with them to their doctor visits and they are becoming more assertive in asking questions.
In addition to empowering patients, to be more informed consumers, Health Design Plus' e-health initiatives are empowering patients to take a more active role in their own health care, including making lifestyle choices that will ultimately improve their health.
