Patient engagement has been defined as “the extent to which patients take an active role in their health care” (1). In the digital age, patient engagement has taken on a new meaning. With the help of technology, patients are now able to be more involved in their health care than ever before.
In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards patient engagement platforms as these platforms are designed to help patients take a more active role in their own healthcare and also they provide a means for patients to track their health data, share information with their care team, and access educational resources. In many cases, it also allow patients to book appointments and request prescription refills, while patient engagement platforms are still in their infancy, they have the potential to revolutionize the way that healthcare is delivered and by giving patients more control over their own health, these platforms could help to reduce costs, improve outcomes, and empower patients to take charge of their own wellbeing.
