The interest in shared decision making and coproduction indicates that health services need to pay attention to how to achieve person-centered care. The potential to increase patient satisfaction, to improve the delivery of high-quality care that is well-aligned with the informed preferences of patients depends on a combination of attitude shifts, skill development and the use of patient-facing information tools and technology. The benefits could be significant provided there is an investment in culture change at organizational levels.
