Abstract

It is now well recognized that patient engagement in health care is a key factor in improving satisfaction; however, it is also critical if we are to improve the health outcomes of our patients, as well as the economic and quality outcomes of our health system. Medicine, though, has traditionally resisted a culture of patient-centered or patient-controlled care. What follow are the reflections of one otolaryngologist on the importance and challenges of making the transition to patient-centered care.
