Activation is the Key

Over a decade of patient activation research and the application of this science make Insignia Health the gold standard provider of solutions to improve self-management, lower costs and achieve better outcomes.

Hundreds of healthcare organizations - health systems, health plans, hospitals, life science firms and government agencies - as well as researchers around the world use the Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) and our PAM-based solutions to advance patient self-management and improve health outcomes.

PAM is the foundation of effective health coaching:

PAM really helps by showing us which patients are in real need of help and helping coaches decide where to start the education process.

Dr. Jane Brock, Medical Director, Telligen

PAM can help reduce hospital readmissions:

Patient Activation is really the key to what we are doing. I can’t imagine doing coaching without getting some idea of where the patient is in terms of their level of activation. It really helps us target the intervention.

Christy Bond, Director, Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, NY

Oregon's Health CO-OP uses Flourish® to engage and reward members

We want our members to understand their own health risks, and we want them to engage with their provider. This is why we designed the wellness program with three key activities to help members take charge of their health.

Dr. Ralph Prows, Former CEO and President, Oregon's Health CO-OP

PAM helps NHS England toward its goal of patient self-management

The Patient Activation Measure helps to break down the traditional divide between patient and professional which has prevented this in the past, while ensuring that those who need the most support receive it.

Portland Business Journal: Patient survey ‘activates’ Insignia Health

The more “activated” a patient is, the more they will take charge of their own health, check their blood glucose levels, take their medications and avoid the ER. And the less money they will cost the health system. Which is why Portland-based Insignia Health’s revenue has grown 25 percent this year and will likely do so again in 2017.
