Patient Engagement Framework from the National eHealth Collaborative

The Patient Engagement Framework is a model created by the National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) to guide healthcare organizations in developing and strengthening their patient engagement strategies through the use of eHealth tools and resources.

The framework describes patient engagement as different stages; (1) inform me, (2) engage me, (3) empower me, (4) partner with me, and (5) support my e-community. The Framework focuses on the US, but I think the overall steps could easily be transferred internationally. And it’s clear we still have a long way to go. Even in the first step, inform me, there is so much room for improvement!
