Chronic conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes are often preventable through healthy lifestyle habits and regular provider visits. But when patients don’t focus on prevention, their risk of avoidable illness and mortality goes up—as does the cost of their care.
So, how can providers boost patients’ use of preventive services? It all starts with closing the intention gap.
Phreesia recently surveyed nearly 13,000 patients about their experiences with preventive care, including their overall utilization, knowledge gaps and potential motivators to take a more active role in disease prevention. We dive deep into the survey results in our new white paper, Closing the intention gap: How to get patients the preventive care they need.
Read the white paper to learn:
- The most common reasons patients don’t prioritize preventive care
- How to educate patients about which preventive services are relevant to them
- Ways technology can help you improve visit rates and bridge generational gaps
