Making the Case for Information: The evidence for investing in high quality health information for patients and the public – Patient Information Forum – 14 June 2013

“A new Patient Information Forum (PiF) research report highlights how providing information to patients and their carers improves outcomes, reduces costs and gives people a better experience of care.

PiF commissioned research to identify the benefits of investing in health information. The project, which looked at over 300 studies, found that there are good business reasons to justify the investment of more time, money and training in health information provision and support. These include positive impacts on service use and costs, substantial capacity savings, and significant returns on investment by increasing shared decision-making, self-care and the self-management of long-term conditions.”
