Safety Snapshot

Roles of patients and providers shift as they ‘coproduce’ health across a continuum

Patients always coproduce heath with their providers, across all settings and to varying degrees, according to each patient’s needs, abilities and preferences. From high-acuity, critical care, where the partnership leans heavily on health care professionals (yellow bar at the left), across the continuum to self-care behaviors (teal bar to the right), patients always play a role.
