Inspira Health Network is a charitable nonprofit health care organization serving communities across southern New Jersey and believes they must become a source of inspiration, encouraging everyone to lead healthier lives. Inspira’s Access app provides direct, informed access to urgent care, eVisits and emergency services for the surrounding community.
This consumer-friendly approach to patient engagement is critical in the face of key shifts in the healthcare delivery model, particularly the transition to value-based care and the increase of high-deductible health plans (HDHPs). As patients increasingly bear the direct cost of their non-catastrophic care, they are becoming engaged, informed consumers and intentional about where they seek care. Value-based reimbursement also shifts the focus to patient engagement for providers, giving patients the tools that allow them to be a fundamental player in their own care and providing avenues that can lead to improved patient activation and outcomes.
By making patients a part of their healthcare, providers can build stronger patient relationships and more effectively understand patient wants and needs while providing better care continuity through patient retention.
