But when organizations consistently rank patient engagement as their most critical care challenge, as hundreds have in response to HIN benchmark surveys, which strategies will help to bring about the desired health behavior change in high-risk populations?
9 Protocols to Promote Patient Engagement in High-Risk, High-Cost Populations presents a collection of tactics that are successfully activating the most resistant, hard-to-engage patients and health plan members in chronic condition management. Whether an organization refers to this population segment as high-risk, high-cost, clinically complex, high-utilizer or simply top-of-the-pyramid 'VIPs,' the touch points and technologies in this resource will recharge their care coordination approach.

Accompanying each patient engagement profile are 2016 HIN Market Metrics on the top activation approaches, culled from responses from hundreds of healthcare organizations in regards to chronic care management, care planning, embedded case management, health coaching, population health management, and many more.
