Baucus health care reform bill recognizes patient-centered approaches are fundamental to safe, quality care

DERBY, Conn., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the nation focuses on the future of health care in U.S. hospitals, VA Medical Centers and health care organizations around the country will join Planetree this October to spotlight patient-centered approaches to health care by commemorating the third annual Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month. The growing recognition that patient-centered approaches to care are fundamental to safe, quality care was recently reinforced by both the inclusion of specific reference to it in the Baucus health care reform bill currently being debated in the United States Senate, and in Secretary for Veteran's Affairs Shinseki's championing of veteran-centered care and the incorporation of many of the Planetree model components as a means of transforming the care being delivered to our veterans.

Additionally, in 2009 HCAHPS patient satisfaction data became publicly available at www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov providing consumers with a resource to compare hospitals not only based on clinical capabilities, but also on important aspects of the patient experience. When patients report their interactions with nurses and physicians are respectful, that information is provided to them in a way that is easy to understand and that the hospital's physical environment is conducive to healing, optimal care can be delivered.

These connections between a patient-centered approach to care and health care quality have been emphasized by the Institute of Medicine, which in 2001 identified patient-centeredness as one of six national aims of a quality healthcare system.

"At a time when we are collectively considering the future of health care, we can all agree on the importance of a quality health care system," said Susan Frampto
