Patients and Consumers Use of Evidence
Conversation opened. 1 unread message.
What patients andconsumers must know about how their providers will be reimbursed in the future. It does not have much to do with how many services you will use.It is all based upon unproven algorithms
The health policy
literature is filled with references to providers, but patients are all
too often left out of the conversation regarding how to best meet their
needs. Growing attention to patient-centered care - with the attendant
need for a better understanding of patient goals, better methods for
engaging patients in their care, and better measures of outcomes that
have meaning for patients - recognizes the moral and practical need to
view patients as the center of the health care system.
The April 2016 issue of Health Affairs, "Patients' And Consumers' Use Of Evidence,"
contains a comprehensive examination of the issues related to engaging
patients more fully in decisions about health care delivery. You are
invited to join us on Thursday, April 7, 2016, at a forum at the W Hotel in Washington, where authors from the issue will discuss their work. Panels will cover:
