What is patient empowerment? In medical terms, it is a procedure that assists people to gain more control over the decisions that affect their health status. The goal of patients is to be in charge of their health. They want to be empowered with data, tools, and technology to make the right decisions about their care.
Patients also want to feel like they have access to data to track trends and outcomes over time. In addition, they need an approach to share the given data with others interested in it. As a result, healthcare organizations can take the help of Salesforce health cloud. Using it, patients get more control over their data to:

In addition, self-service tools can help patients keep track of their medications and follow up on test results.
II. Focus on Simplifying Care

For example, if a patient needs to communicate with their doctor about a test result, they can do so directly through the self-service tool. It eliminates the need for phone calls or paper forms. In addition, self-service tools can provide patients with direct access to important information such as appointment times and directions to the clinic.
III. Avail right data at accurate time

Therefore, they don’t have to search through multiple sources just because one might not be available where you live or work (and then wait hours upon hours while they’re being created).
IV. Manage Appointment and Scheduling
Patients also use them to manage their appointments and scheduling. Some tools can even let you schedule your next visit or send messages directly to your doctor via text, email, or phone. For example, a patient may give access only to the doctor treating them, but not their spouse or children. It permits patients to keep track of their personal information. Further, it also ensures they receive data from the right person at the right time.
V. Enhance Patient Engagement
