Modifying Patients' Behaviors to Optimize Disease Management Outcomes
One of the greatest roadblocks to effective disease management is getting patients to comply with doctors' orders. By using a combination of technology and psychology, healthcare providers, health plan administrators and employers can work to modify patients' behaviors to optimize disease management outcomes.
But to be successful, these programs require active patient engagement that emphasizes self-care, self-monitoring, and self-education. In short, programs that empower and motivate members to participate in their own healthcare. But how do you get patients to invest in themselves?
In this 60-page special report, "Modifying Patients' Behaviors to Optimize Disease Management Outcomes," based on two recent audio conferences, expert speakers described results-oriented strategies that healthcare organizations can use to bring about the appropriate attitude and behavior adjustment in patients.
You'll hear from Richard Citrin, Vice President of Health and Productivity at Corphealth Inc., Gregg Lehman, former President and CEO, Gordian Health Solutions, Michael Montijo, MD, MPH, FACP, Senior Vice President, Government Relations at American Healthways, Fred Navarro, President and Founder, PATH Institute, Scott Smith, MD, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, First Health and Sean Sullivan, President and CEO, Institute for Health and Productivity Management on theories, application and results of behavior modification and patient engagement strategies.

Motivating Resistant Patients: Influencing Behaviors to Improve Outcomes
Patients' health behaviors often contribute to the onset of their diseases, and their continued behavior can either help or hinder their progress. Healthcare providers need motivational strategies that respect the individual's state of mind but result in behavior changes that improve the patient's outcomes. In this 40-page special report, "Motivating Resistant Patients: Influencing Behaviors to Improve Outcomes," HIN's panel of experts described how their organizations meet the challenges of motivating patients who are resistant to change. You'll hear from Rick Botelho, MD, professor of family medicine at the University of Rochester Family Medicine Center, Richard Citrin, PhD, vice president of EAP solutions at UPMC Health Plan and former vice president of Integrated Care Management, Corphealth Inc. and Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, medical manager, St. Mary’s Managed Care Services on the strategies that their organizations have developed to meet these challenges.
