A Clinical Pathway to Well-Being: Putting Patient Priorities at the Center of Care


Patient Priorities Care is a clinical framework designed to align primary and specialty care around each individual patient’s goals. Using a patient’s self-defined goals can be a powerful motivator for improving health outcomes. Our experience with this approach on a population of nearly 124,000 Medicare Advantage patients after 1 year indicates that this model of care is generating substantial improvements in clinical outcomes for patients with type 2 diabetes, congestive heart failure, and hypertension.
