The engagement of consumers using online and electronic tools, including mobile technology, is a central and necessary component of high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered care, as well as rapidly emerging delivery system and payment reforms. The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) explored ways in which clinicians, hospitals, health plans, technology companies and mobile health organizations have innovated, enabling consumers to have timely access to their health information, improve communication and coordination with their clinicians and care teams, and engage in strategies to improve their health and health care. Participants discussed the policies and strategies that will accelerate and promote the widespread adoption of these innovations.
