New Buzzword Alert: “Patient Activation”

We have a new buzzword to add to mHealth.

Here is an interesting article from mobihealthnews on “Patient Activation,” a new coinage for patients taking charge of their own health and healthcare. We are, of course our own best advocates. The mobile health apps will help us do just that.

With all of the changes coming, we all need to be our own first lines of defense, to help us better help those professionals who take care of us.
