How to Use Big Data Analytics to Boost Patient Engagement

Patient engagement is a key element of quality healthcare delivery. In order for patients to maintain their well-being, they must take an active role in their care and understand what they must do to stay healthy.

However, all this information may do more harm than good if clinicians and patients do not have meaningful tools for interpreting, sharing, and interacting with this data. Healthcare leaders can leverage big data analytics tools, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing, to draw useful conclusions and ensure patients actively participate in their own care. What are the top ways providers can utilize big data analytics technologies to boost patient engagement in the clinical, research, and home environments.
