Health care industry wants to get patients to help themselves

If your clients want to lower health care costs, you might want to tell them to be proactive or participate more in their own care. Studies show that patients who are highly engaged in their own health care have lower health care costs and better outcomes. And the federal government is promoting new initiatives for people to have access to their medical records online. 
Meanwhile, providers are making sure that patients who are missing preventive care pay attention to their health and follow their proposed medical regimens.
