Evaluating Patient Empowerment in Association With eHealth Technology: Scoping Review.

08:00 EDT 29th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Evaluating Patient Empowerment in Association With eHealth Technology: Scoping Review."

The prioritization of sustainable patient-centered care in contemporary health care has resulted in an increased focus on patient empowerment, which in turn is considered to facilitate patient independence, self-management, and self-efficacy. However, a definitional consensus of empowerment remains elusive, impeding efforts to translate the conceptual ideals of empowerment into a measurable entity associated with changes in health care behavior or outcomes. The rapid integration of technology in health care serves to add another layer of complexity in the measurability and operationalization of empowerment and helps to create a specific context in which this conceptual entity should be further examined.
