Four senior healthcare leaders discuss one of their toughest challenges: getting patients involved and engaged in their own care. One challenge is “providing information through our EHRs in a way that is easy to understand.” says Michael Schaffrinna, MD, CMO of Community Health of Central Washington in Washington state. For some patients there is a deeper issue. Some feel it is the physician’s responsibility to make them healthy, says Don Beckstead, MD, Program Director at Altoona (PA) Family Physicians.
