Patient Centered Care

Promoting Patient Centered and Personalized Care
No two patients are alike. All patients have unique physical and emotional needs. That’s why we study ways to tailor care to the individual circumstances and risk factors of each person. This research seeks to personalize the care Veterans receive to help ensure they get the care they need and want, and to minimize unnecessary care. Current studies include:

  • A decision tool that estimates a person’s chance for poor cardiovascular outcomes, to determine the best and most cost-effective treatment.
  • Performance measures that motivate appropriate care by taking into account patients’ illnesses, risk factors, and preferences.
