Putting Patient-Centered Care Into Perspective

Great article but a little naive. Patient centered care DOES require a major cultural shift and that includes the physicians. Unfortunately the reality - especially is small rural, community hospitals - precludes any effort on the part of the physicians to start thinking of their practice behaviors from the patient's perspective. And its typically supported by hospital execs who want to keep the beds filled. As long as physicians control the sandbox, they pretty much run the playground. The successful CEO - and I admit there are plenty - is the one who agrees to share the sandbox to keep the playground running smoothly.
