When providers and payers work together to improve patient health, they can expect better outcomes. 

Beth Israel Lahey Health and Blue Cross Blue Shield Massachusetts recently implemented shared decision-making (SDM) to improve patient engagement in service of healthier lives. They empowered patients to choose the most appropriate colorectal cancer screening option — at home or in the office.  

The results? In the past year, they’ve sent 17,000 text messages to patients who have a colon cancer screening gap. Before the program only 5% of patients opted for a FIT colon cancer screening, whereas 20% of patients opted for this method after SDM was implemented.  

Attend to learn:

  • How providers and payers can come together to implement programs that improve patient outcomes 
  • How text messaging outreach can improve patient engagement with cancer screenings 
  • How top healthcare organizations are using shared decision-making to increase patient engagement

Watch now:

BILH and BCBSMA saw a 300% increase to FIT colon cancer screens after implementing shared decision-making
