Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®)
The PAM survey reliably predicts future ER visits, hospital admissions and readmissions, medication adherence and more.
PAM activation levels are mapped to hundreds of consumer health characteristics – motivators, attitudes, behaviors and outcomes – for dozens of health conditions.
Take Individuals from Disengaged to Activated
PAM identifies where an individual falls within four different levels of activation. This gives providers and health coaches insight to more effectively support each individual.
A Single Point Change in PAM Score is Valuable
Each point increase in PAM score correlates to a 2% decrease in hospitalization and 2% increase in medication adherence.
Save Time & Money
Allocating resources – providers, coaches, materials – based on PAM level reduces the inefficiency of a one-size-fits-all approach that ultimately fits no one.
Put Snap Judgements Aside
Demographics and socio-economic factors account for 6% or less of the variation in PAM scores, which means health activation level can change over time, which is good news.
Trust PAM's Prospective Predictive Power
Traditional retrospective clinical risk models take years to deliver relevant results, and still fail to identify more than half of patients in the lower two activation levels.
Depend on the Science Behind PAM
PAM is the gold-standard for measuring health activation. With over 300 peer-reviewed published studies validating its design and results, no other activation assessment comes close.
