Industry Shifting Towards Patient-Centered Care
“We will not achieve value-based care until we put the patient at the center of our healthcare system.” — Seema Verma, CMS Administrator
As indicated by Verma’s statement, the health care industry is moving towards a more patient-centered care model that captures what is meaningful and valuable to consumers — more access to health information, engaging them and their families in clinical decision-making and tailoring services to them.
