A patient-centered care model can be defined as a model of care that is explicitly designed to optimize the health of patients based on their particular needs. Examples of patient-centered care models include:
- Health promotion and wellness;
- Patient Centered Medical Home;
- Chronic care improvement;
- Integrated care models (e.g. primary care, behavioral health, and oral health); and
- Community-based care transitions models (e.g. for patients at risk for hospital readmissions).
Whatever the health care setting, the design of a patient-centered care model should be determined by the needs of the patient population along the continuum of care. We help health care organizations:
- Define the needs of their patient population based on population health assessment.
- Design patient-centered care models that can meet the needs of specific population groups.
- Build organizational capacity for implementing patient-centered care models.
- Assure execution of patient-centered care models.
