Four Levels of Health Activation
The Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) assessment gauges the knowledge, skills and confidence essential to managing one’s own health and healthcare. The PAM assessment segments consumers into one of four progressively higher activation levels. Each level addresses a broad array of self-care behaviors and offers deep insight into the characteristics that drive health activation. A PAM score can also predict healthcare outcomes including medication adherence, ER utilization and hospitalization.
