Patient Activation: A key to controlling healthcare costs
Every individual can become more engaged in their own health and disease management if they receive support and education based on an understanding of what they are capable of taking on. Toward this end, Insignia Health offers the Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) to assess each individual’s current knowledge, skills and confidence. Validated by more than 130 peer-reviewed research studies and used by leading health plans, hospitals, clinics, medical homes, Medicare and Medicaid agencies and pharmaceutical firms across the country, PAM is the cornerstone of a suite of Insignia solutions that empower coaches and clinicians to engage patients, improve health outcomes, and better control costs. Our Flourish® solution gives consumers themselves the interactive support to learn self-management skills on their own.
Making measurable strides in accountable care
The Patient Activation Measure® assessment tool is proven to help even the most challenging patients become more engaged in their own healthcare and disease management. Again and again, improvements in behavior and health activation have been documented, as have improved health outcomes and better use of resources.

More than a 130 independent, peer-reviewed studies have documented the validity and value of PAM® assessments across scores of disease states and demographically diverse populations.
