The healthcare landscape is transitioning from a provider-centered care model toward greater emphasis on patient-centered care. The shift to patient-centered care reflects efforts to increase the quality of healthcare and the care experience. The current state of research within healthcare remains focused on how to provide high quality and sound research that will bring new equipment, procedures, and verify strategies that may benefit healthcare globally. However, changes in the healthcare atmosphere bring a new perspective to research. How do we implement the paradigm shift of patient-centered care, into an academic research environment? Will this holistic mindset fully cross into the spectrum of research and fit its existing criteria?
The purpose of this qualitative focused ethnographic case study is to describe the implementation of patient-centered care, as defined by the Institute of Medicine and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and examine how this model may be integrated within the standards of current healthcare research settings. The study describes a model to translate the success or failure of integrating patient-centered care into the academic research environment, compared to the expectations of current understanding about patient-centered care.
