“The stakes are high: Advanced, population-level healthcare IT systems will not work without a better, more intelligent approach to patient engagement,” Chilmark Research contends in its new 2014/2015 Clinical Patient Engagement Market Trends Report. “The introduction of new technologies, if accompanied by effective organizational leadership and requisite adjustments to clinical workflow, can have a transformative effect on the relationship a healthcare organization has with its patients. As the delivery system transitions bit-by-bit to a value-based reimbursement model, technology that encourages and enables patients to take a more active role in their own care will become a critical investment.”

Here are six high-level conclusions on the state of the patient engagement market. The 100-page report analyzes each conclusion along with recommendations, and profiles 14 vendors.
