27 Utah Beacon Consumer Engagement


29 In the Clinic  Outside the Clinic A ratio problem: 1% to 99% How can we support patients beyond the physician office to improve self care and diabetes management? “Look, it’s very simple: Lose weight, take your meds, stop smoking, eat right…and try not to be so depressed about it.” Easy, right? Great, see you in six months! ?

30 Behavior Change: The $3 Trillion Dollar Question How can we leverage technology to help patients change behaviors? How can we improve health care decision making – from choice of a health plan to daily self-care practices?

31 Beacon Patient Engagement Tools Performance reporting Web site Support patient healthcare decision making Diabetes tracking Web tools Organize, simplify care regimens Provide ongoing, data-driven feedback to pt Improve self-tracking and focus on improvement Smartphone innovations Can we make tracking and self management fun??? Mobile Health “Care Manager-lite” Cost-effective Address health disparities

32 Utah HealthScape Patient decisions about health plans and providers impact the care they receive and the system they receive it in Goal: To develop a consumer-directed website Educates consumers about quality variation; Helps consumers find and demand high quality care Increases competition, accountability to consumers of healthcare, and lowers costs Motivates consumers to advocate for public reporting on nationally- recognized indicators of quality care
