Potential Benefits of IBM Micromedex Carenotes

Increases patient engagement

Patients that are able to understand their conditions become more engaged in their health. Engaged patients are more likely to have lower healthcare costs, normal systolic blood pressure, triglyceride/HDL levels and a healthy weight. They are less likely to visit the emergency room or be hospitalized.
