Patient Engagement Systems (PES) allows primary care doctors to identify, manage, and draw in patients with chronic diseases. The platform assembles laboratory, pharmaceutical, and other clinical data into a Web-based platform, which delivers patient-centric clinical decision support. At the same time, the platform transmits personalized messages that familiarize patients with care plans. The system encourages patients to be more involved in their care, while helping providers stick to chronic care guidelines.
The platform has demonstrated total cost reduction for chronic patients. In an NIH clinical study, PES clients saw savings of more than $2,400 per diabetic patient per year. Pictured here is a slide listing the various processes and platforms on which PES is available.
