Most patients have poor health literacy and a very patchy understanding of their treatment plans. Hospitals, especially those dealing with non-communicable diseases, see a 50%-60% patient drop-off by the end of first year. This non-adherence by patients leads to poor health outcomes and increased morbidity. A good patient engagement strategy goes a long way in improving patient compliance and retention.
