While healthcare systems and practices have adopted effective operational changes, procedural efficiencies, and deep vendor negotiations, much work remains to further address the cost of medical services. At CoPE, we believe that the greatest improvements available in healthcare cost containment and outcomes will be realized with improved healthcare literacy and effective patient and family engagement.
The Consortium for Patient Engagement is built to advance technology designed to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs through improved healthcare literacy and effective patient and family engagement. Our focus is technology for interactive chronic care management.
As its centerpiece, CoPE features the Patient Health Engagement (PHE) Scale to quantify the health care consumers’ emotional, psychological and cognitive status. Developed by Professor Guendalina Graffigna, PhD, the PHE Scale positions the consumer as the central driver of healthcare consumption and business demand. A healthcare management philosophy, model, and tool are provided to advance this unique approach.

CoPE offers match making services to providers and payers through our extensive network of developers to address major patient activation and maintenance issues, and business development guidance to emerging organizations in this space.
