Roll Call: Patient-Centeredness, Comparative Effectiveness, and Value

October 20, 2015
In Roll Call, Tony Coelho former House Majority Whip, Chairman of the Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC) and author of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) discussed the need for a patient-centered approach to healthcare.

Coelho says:
“Policymakers talk about the “value” of treatments as if there is one value algorithm that applies to all patients equally. While that may be true in academia, in the real world value is personal. Research on treatment value requires asking questions and measuring outcomes that matter to patients, and delivering care in ways that empower patients to make decisions based on their individual circumstances, needs and treatment goals.”
