A NEJM Catalyst summary of of a NEJM Insights Council report says:

“Many definitions of patient engagement are debated, but when it comes down to what approaches are most effective, members of the NEJM Insights Council — consisting of healthcare executives, clinical leaders, and clinicians — emphasize clinician time with patients. The next most effective approach is shared decision-making, defined as clinicians and patients working together to produce the best outcomes possible. Only these two initiatives have broad support from our survey respondents. At the bottom of the list of effectiveness is remote monitoring using wireless devices/wearables.”
