The Institute for Health Technology Transformation (iHT2) has released a report titled, "Top Ten Things You Need to Know About Engaging Patients." This report is a compilation of what key health IT experts from across the United States think are the most important things you need to know about engaging patients in the digital age along with four key recommendations for practical action.

The report discusses how healthcare organizations, which provide high quality outcomes for patients, will be the ones who prosper under new health reform models, such as ACOs and Patient-Centered Medical Home. It also explores the concerns that come with patient engagement, and the advantages and strategies that should be explored.
