Constructing a Patient Education System: A Performance Technology Project
Bell, Edith E.
Performance Improvement, v48 n4 p17-21 Apr 2009
The purpose of the patient education system described here was to distribute patient education material to and within medical practices managed by a small medical practice management company. The belief was that patient education opportunities improved health care outcomes and increased patient participation in health care decisions and compliance with health care plans. This tool reinforced medical practices' commitment to having patients participate actively in their treatment, differentiated them from other practices, and contributed to the generation of new patients.
