In the midst of a changing political climate that will almost assuredly impact how providers engage with patients, it’s critical to become aware of all methods for engaging patients and keeping them engaged in their health. To that end, the Michigan Public Health Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving community health through collaboration and state-of-the-art community health practices, conducted a survey with 900 Medicaid beneficiaries. The Survey of Medicaid Consumers indicated that a relatively high percentage to Medicaid beneficiaries have been given health IT technology. However, a significant gap exists between those that take advantage of health information and those who do not.

This, along with other conclusions on technology usage drawn from the survey, give providers important insights into multiple methods they can use to effectively engage Medicaid patients. This includes tailoring outreach and providing health IT that is appropriate for age and personal preference.

Key takeaways

  • Identify ownership and usage patterns of health technology by the Medicaid population.
  • Identify strategies for engagement with health IT.
  • Identify health IT as a method of accessing health care and medical services.
