Abstract

The patient-centered care model needs to retain a central focus on the patient. Process and system interfaces are key areas where alignment on behalf of the patient is required. Often, the current system is out of control. Departmental infrastructure and the need for resource reallocation must be assessed. No blueprint exists for implementing patient-centered care, although many incremental patient-focused initiatives are already underway. Impact on patients must be the balancing factor.
