Experts identify 14 barriers to better patient health
Researchers at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute found clinical care reflected only 20 percent of overall health outcomes and that nonclinical factors play a greater role in boosting patient outcomes and cutting medical expenses. Researchers identified 14 factors that serve as patient barriers — including access, care coordination and financial status — and said that understanding and addressing these factors could improve care and lower health costs.
